I have not resigned as Commissioner | Atiku’s daughter speaks on defection to the PDP

While former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has joined the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) ahead of the 2019 elections, one of his daughters, Fatima Atiku-Abubakar, who is the Adamawa Commissioner of Health, has said she has not followed her father out of the ruling APC.

Why it matters: The Sun Newspaper had reported that Fatima had stepped down as the Commissioner, alongside seven others, citing loyalty to Atiku.

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 according to Premium Times.

Fatima Atiku-Abubakar, 45, is the first child of Abubakar.

One of the other Commissioners – Land and Survey – Yayaji Mijinyawa,  who was listed amongst those that purportedly resigned, also said he hasn’t resigned.

It’s not true,” he said.
