The Minister for Women Affairs, Aisha Jumai Alhassan, slumped on Monday while inspecting the Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs camp in Fufore local government area of Adamawa State.

The incident took place as she was inside the camp’s store to inspect foodstuff and other items supplied by the Federal Government.

A mild drama erupted as her aides engaged journalists in a physical combat to avoid taking pictures of what happened. An aide of the minister, who ordered newsmen out of the store, smashed the gadgets of some reporters.

The minister’s health challenge came to the fore when the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Babachir David Lawal listed her among members of the Federal
Executive Council, FEC, to be prayed for, saying she had been down but now “recuperating from surgery in the US.”

Alhassan, while addressing the IDPs earlier, stated that she visited the camp on the directive of President Muhammadu Buhari to investigate the allegations of rape and children abuse in camps in the Northeast.

She urged the displaced persons to believe the present government and that very soon they would be back to their ancestral homes.

The minister who also presented assorted items to the IDPs said that government was working hard to rebuild the region and that the administration would continue to provide people-friendly projects to Nigerians.

She had earlier visited the state governor, Mohammed Umar Bindow, calling for a return of the Women Development Centre occupied at present by the Appeal Court to the real owners.

Bindow promised the minister that he would urgently find a solution to the issue, and commended Buhari for his zeal in rebuilding the Northeast and improving the living standard of women in the state.
