Hajiya Aisha Alhassan Minister Of Women Affairs Collapses At IDP Camp

– Hajiya Aisha Alhassan reportedly collapsed at an IDP
camp in Adamawa state
– The minister of women affairs is said to have been
diagnosed of low sugar
Emerging reports suggest that the minister of women
Affairs, Hajiya Aisha Alhassan, collapsed at an
Internally Displaced Persons’ (IDPs) camp on Monday,
September 19.
Minister of women affairs, Aisha Alhassan reportedly
collapsed at an IDP camp in Adamawa state.
According to This Day, the minister collapsed at a camp
situated in Fufore Local Government Area of Adamawa
state while addressing vulnerable IDP women inside a
store in the camp.
Alhassan, who was in crutches when she arrived the
camp, and after addressing the IDPs, entered the store
to discuss with some of the said vulnerable women
sequel to an allegation by some foreign non-
governmental organisations (NGOs) on violation of
some girls and women at the IDPs’ camps in the

While discussing with the women, she collapsed, but
was quickly assisted to a chair and given a bottle of
Coke to drink, which revived her.
According to some of her aides, she had been
diagnosed with low sugar, a problem that creates
serious weakness of the body.
But despite her state of health, she managed to explain
to journalists at the camp that her fact-finding mission
to Yobe, Borno and Adamawa states tend to confirm the
foreign NGOs’ allegation.
The minister had earlier said that she was at the camp
to give a message from President Muhammadu Buhari
to the displaced persons, who wanted them to cheer up
despite the hardship because everything was being
done to ensure that they go back to their homes.
She told the IDPs that the president was touched by their
suffering and that was why he sent her to come and
donate relief materials and felicitate with them.
Alhassan also paid a courtesy visit to the Governor of
Adamawa State, Alhaji Muhammadu Bindow, and told
him that her visit to the IDPs was to investigate
allegations of violation of girls and women and the
compound issues of orphans and the vulnerable.
She used the occasion to remind the governor of calls
by various women groups on the need to return the
women development centre, which was given to the
Court of Appeal for its use.
The state commissioner for Information, Mr Ahmad
Sajoh, in his remarks, told the minister and her staff
that the governor celebrated the last Ed-el-Kabir with
the IDPs at the Malkohi camp.

According to Sajoh, the governor and his cabinet,
including some All Progressives Congress (APC)
stalwarts ate and danced with the displaced persons.
In his brief remarks, Bindow stressed the need for
peaceful co-existence, adding: “Without peace, no one
would readily do anything.”
The deputy governor, Mr Martins Babale, in a vote of
thanks, observed that keeping the IDPs was still a
problem because of the state of the economy.
According to him, the state was still expecting about
56,000 displaced persons from Cameroun.
It would be recalled that there have been similar
reports regarding the poor state of health of some
ministers of the present dispensation.
Sometime earlier in the year, there were reports that
Nigeria’s minister of labour and employment, Dr Chris
Nwabueze Ngige, collapsed at the National Assembly.
The collapse reportedly took place on the sacred floor of
the parliament on Thursday, February 18. However, a
couple of hours after several controversial publications,
Senator Chris Ngige denied the reports that he collapsed
during National Assembly budget defence.
Speaking with The Nation correspondent aboard an
aircraft from South Africa, on February 18, he described
the report as rumour aimed at damaging his strength
and personality.
