Following alleged corruption allegations hanging on her neck, Persons With Disabilities (PWDs) in Kano State have asked President Bola Tinubu to replace the suspended minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, Dr Betta Edu with Halimat Adenike Tejuosho.
They said the call has become imperative as Halimat is the most preferred candidate and qualified for the job.
The PWDs, consisting of the deaf, physically challenged, Albinos and others led by former Senior Special Assistant to former Governor Abdullahi Ganduje on People With Disability, Adnan Ali Daneji, made the call while addressing journalists in Kano Sunday.
He said, “We commend the effort of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for his bold step towards addressing matters that concern governance without compromise. The president’s unwavering resolve has brought sanity into the Nigeria polity and history will be kind to the chief promoter of the Renewed Hope agenda.
“Among the exemplary actions exhibited by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu which has attracted commendation even by critics is the suspension of Betta Edu, from her position as minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation over misappropriation of funds meant for people like us who are disabled and finding it so hard to survive this period.
