ABUJA (Reuters) - Nigeria's women's affairs minister submitted her resignation in a letter to the president on Saturday.

Aisha Alhassan, though a relatively junior cabinet member, is the second minister to resign this month. Kemi Adeosun, who had overseen finance, stepped down over qualification forgery allegations.
