28 October 2015, 17:04

Sokoto - Some senators from Sokoto State have endorsed, Aisha Abubakar, for a ministerial post.

There has been opposition to her nomination by Muhammadu Buhari with critics arguing she was not a card-carrying member of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

However, senators Ibrahim Gobir, Aliyu Wamako and Ibrahim Abdullahi, endorsed the nominee from the state in a letter written to the Senate President, Bukola Saraki.

Meanwhile, a petition against Abubakar has been withdrawn following a motion by Senator Ibrahim Gobir. Senator Sani Yerima seconded the motion.
