Minister booed during presentation of certificates to FCT council chairmen



Minister of State for the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Hajiya Ramatu Tijjani Aliyu, was booed during the presentation of certificates to elected area councils chairmen on Friday February 18.

Daily Trust reported that Tijjani’s speech was disrupted by some party supporters when she advised the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to devise an alternative where people will vote manually if there are technical glitches.

As she tried to pacify the aggrieved crowd, they shouted her down by saying “Ba ma so’, meaning “We don’t want”.

It was further learnt that Senator Philip Aduda, representative of the FCT at the National Assembly, stormed out of the venue in anger.

As security personnel at the venue failed to control the rowdy party supporters, the minister, who later dropped her microphone, went round to exchange pleasantries with some dignitaries before leaving the venue.

The INEC REC, Alhaji Yahaya Bello later presented the certificates of return to the chairmen of AMAC, Kwali, Gwagwalada, Bwari and Kuje area councils.
