Governor of Taraba State, Darius Dickson Ishaku says it received with deep shock the news of the death of Aisha Alhassan, a former governorship candidate in the state and frontline member of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP.
Gov Ishaku described Aisha Alhassan as a woman of great courage and that her death is for him a personal loss, adding that she left a vacuum that is difficult to be filled.
He said he and the late Senator Aisha Alhassan had enjoyed a robust political relationship and had kept in touch even while both of them contested for the same seat of Governor of Taraba State from different political platforms in 2015 and 2019.
A press statement by the Governor’s media aide Bala Dan-Abu described the Senator as an asset and that her death has robbed Taraba State and Nigeria of the benefits of her wealth of experience in politics.
He adds that as minister of Women Affairs Senator Aisha contributed immensely towards the social and political emancipation of women and that her death has left a vacuum that will be difficult to fill.
He urged her family to take solace in the fact that Senator Aisha Alhassan lived a life of service to humanity and prayed to God to grant her soul eternal rest.
