During an interview with BBC Hausa, Minister of women affairs Aisha Alhassan declares publicly. That former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar is her godfather.

A source disclosed that the Minister also affirm her support for Atiku, if he chooses to contest in the forthcoming 2019 election.

She said: “Atiku is my godfather even before I joined politics. And again, Baba Buhari did not tell us that he is going to run in 2019.
Let me tell you today that if Baba said he is going to contest in 2019, I swear to Allah, I will go before him and kneel and tell him that ‘Baba I am grateful for the opportunity you gave me to serve your government as a minister. But Baba just like you knows I will support only Atiku because he is my godfather. If Atiku says he is going to contest.
If because of what I said, I am sacked, it will not bother me because I believe in Allah that my time has elapsed that is why.
Baba is not a mad man like those calling for my sack. They have been sending it and spreading that if Baba sees this I will be sacked‎.”

“Your Excellency, our father and our President by the grace of God, come 2019.” She addressed the ex-Vice President in a meeting.
