“With profound gratitude and great humility, I have decided to voluntarily step down from the senatorial race sequel to the yearnings of women and other well-meaning Nigerians, who see the need for a strong voice for women at the Senate having consulted widely with my family, well-wishers and supporters conscious of the role I play for women in Nigeria today.

“So, to all Nigerian women and young girls who have raised concerns as to what next, be rest assured that I, Tallen, have not submitted any resignation letter. And therefore, it is my decision not to go ahead with this request but carry on as the Minister of Women Affairs,”she said.

According to her, President Muhammadu Buhari’s commitment to the advancement of women, necessitated the need for her to continue as the minister, which will help in addressing challenges affecting women and children.

However, former managing director, Nigeria Security, Printing and Minting (NSPM), Abbas Umar Masanawa, who is one of the governorship aspirant of Katsina State, yesterday, said he has complied with presidential directive and resigned.

Fielding questions from newsmen in Abuja, when asked if he has adhered to the directives, he said: “Absolutely, I have abided completely with the presidential directive. And I’ve resigned my appointment as the managing director and chief executive of NSPM. I sent in my resignation through the chairman of the board, who also happens to be the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).”
