Alhassan had in her earlier to President Buhari disclosed that she was resigning from the ruling party because of the disqualification handed over to her by the APC sstting a temporary set back to her guber bid.

“I received with shock and dismay that I was disqualified and not cleared to contest,” Alhassan said in the letter. “No reason was given for my disqualification Sir.”
