Dr. Maryam Shetty, who was born in Kano State and was removed from President Bola Tinubu’s list of ministerial nominations on Thursday, said her faith as a devoted Muslim helped her make sense of the setback.

    In a statement released on Saturday, Shetty blamed the failure on life’s “characteristic unpredictability,” saying that the unexpected development was Almighty Allah’s decision.

    The move, despite being reversed, was a statement that Nigeria was ready to embrace a future when young women could assume positions of influence and power, she added, noting that the nomination by the President had brought her great honor.

    “I have found myself at the center of a crucial period in Nigeria’s political landscape,” Shetty remarked. I feel incredibly honored that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu nominated me for a ministerial position. This constituted a big step towards a more inclusive national representation coming from the traditional, conservative regions of northern Nigeria.

    “The pure happiness and pleasure I experienced upon being nominated were beyond words. It was an indication that our wonderful nation was prepared to accept a future in which young women like me, even from the most traditional sections of Nigeria, might assume positions of influence and power. It was also a confirmation of my ability and a nod to my vision.
