Atiku’s Daughter Still In APC

The daughter of former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, Fatima Atiku-Abubakar has said she has not followed her father to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party(PDP).

Fatima Atiku-Abubakar, a medical doctor and Adamawa State Commissioner for Health said she is currently pre-occupied with the duties of the state.

“I have not resigned and I am performing my duties as the representative of H.E the Governor on all health matters in the state,” Ms. Atiku-Abubakar said in a text message to Premium Times on Wednesday morning.

Fatima Atiku-Abubakar, 45, is the first child of Mr. Abubakar. She was appointed commissioner in August 2015.

Her rebuttal comes a day after The Sun Newspaper reported that Ms. Atiku-Abubakar had stepped down from Governor Jibrilla Bindow’s cabinet with seven other commissioners.

The paper further reported that the officials resigned because of their loyalty to the former Vice President.

Yayaji Mijinyawa, the Commissioner for Land and Survey who was listed amongst those that purportedly resigned, also said he hasn’t resigned.
