Aisha Alhassan

The rivalry between members of the Aisha Alhassan(Mama Taraba) support group and APC Integrity group at the venue of the APC national convention took a new dimension when one Isa Kambari was beaten by members of the Mama Taraba faction at the venue over a hot argument on delegates verification.
On the other hand, the integrity faction boys beat one pastor Stephen Nathaniel who is the alleged state secretary of Mama Taraba’s group. Pastor Stephen was beaten to a pulp and all his clothes were removed.
Mama Taraba’s supporters have been having a running battle with the integrity group, a splinter group of APC. The group’s activity came to light after APC youths across local government areas in the state called on Alhassan to contest the 2019 gubernatorial election and the group is composed primarily of those opposed to her emergence as APC standard bearer.

Though the integrity group consists mainly of Senator Yusuf Abubakar Yusuf supporters, Senator Abubakar Tutare, Ambassador Ardo Jika Hassan, who was APC chairman in the state until his appointment as ambassador, the party’s machinery in Taraba state still remain in the firm grip of Alhassan.
