By Charles Kumolu

Indigenes of Sokoto State, on the platform of Sokoto Citizens Forum, have said they might consider sensitizing the people of the state across the three senatorial districts on the likelihood of commencing the recall of Senators Aliyu Wammako, Ibrahim Gobir and Ibrahim Danbaba over their perceived indisposition to the choice of Mrs. Aisha Abubakar as minister.

Secretary General of the group, Malam Isah Suleiman, told newsmen in Sokoto that Aisha had the prerequisite experience that would be useful to Nigeria at this period of financial crisis.

His words: We condemn, in the strongest of terms, the position of Senator Aliyu Wamakko, Senator Ibrahim Gobir and Senator Ibrahim Danbaba on our ministerial nominee. We shall soon initiate the process of their recall.

“In this era of dwindling oil revenue, Aisha will bring to bear her expertise as a financial guru in diversifying our economy. She is a rare gem, a princess from the caliphate, whose nomination attracted applause from the length and breadth of this great country.”
