FAMILY AFFAIRS!! Buhari’s Minister, KHADIJA IBRAHIM Defeats SON To Win APC Ticket In Yobe

Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Khadija Ibrahim has defeated her step son, Mohammed Ibrahim to clinch the All Progressives Congress, APC ticket for Damaturu/Gulani/Gujba/Tarmuwa, Yobe Federal Constituency.

Hajia Ibrahim is the wife of former Yobe State governor, Senator Abba Bukar Ibrahim. She was a House of Representatives member before her appointment as a minister by President Ibrahim Buhari.

Prof Abba Gambo, the returning officer, announced Hajia Ibrahim 1,295 votes to defeat Mohammed who scored only 15 votes.

In spite of pressures mounted on Mohammed to step down for his father’s wife, he insisted on the contest.

Two other contenders, House of Representatives member Abdullahi Kukuwa and Alhaji Ahmed Buba, stepped down for the minister while Mohammed refused.
