Ex-Minister ‘Mama Taraba’ dies at 61

A former minister of Women Affairs and Social Development, Aisha-Jummai Alhassan, has died at the age of 61.

Suleiman Dantsoho, her former media aide, confirmed the death to DAILY NIGERIAN, saying she died at a Cairo hospital on Friday afternoon.

She was appointed minister in 2015 by President Muhammadu Buhari to represent Taraba State after losing the 2015 governorship election to the incumbent Darius Ishaku.


Popularly known as ‘Mama Taraba’, Ms Alhassan was born on September 16, 1959 in Jalingo, Taraba State.


She resigned as the minister on July 27, 2018 after the ruling APC screening committee disqualified her from the 2019 governorship primaries.

She was appointed in 2015 to the cabinet of President Muhammadu Buhari after his election.
