Re-run: Taraba Women Vow to go Naked if Mama Taraba is Intimidated

Re-run: Taraba Women Vow to go Naked if Mama Taraba is Intimidated

Ahead of the April 25th re-run election in
Taraba State, some concerned women
are threatening to mobilise hundreds of
thousands of Nigerian women to protest
naked in support of the female
contestant in the gubernatorial race,
should there be foul play in the process.
The women under the aegis of The Ladies
of Grace and Agape Sisters alleged that
there were noticeable series of
intimidations exhibited by the opponents
of Sen. Aisha Jummai Alhassan, aspiring
to become first elected female governor
in the country.
The women therefore urged all the
agencies to remain neutral during the re-
run election, while also calling on all
registered voters especially, Taraba
women to ignore all kinds of intimidation
and come out en-masse to vote for their
own.
The Coordinator of the group, Jane Onuh
who disclosed this yesterday while
addressing a press conference in Abuja,
specifically fingered men, military, police
as well as electoral officials, to be the
source of the intimidations on Alhassan.
Onuh pointed out that the women would
have remained quiet and neutral but for
their disadvantaged background and the
clamour to sustain the goals set for
Nigerian women in the post Beijin
conference over two decades ago.
“We dare warn of adverse consequences
should the establishment or otherwise
known as Taraba Cabal insist on
intimidating a female contestant in the
Taraba guber race.
“For the avoidance of doubt, we will
mobilise hundreds of thousands of
Nigerian women to protest nudely on
April 25th if any official behave funny.
“We will be exposing the cabals and their
cohorts who are still living in the stone
age that the position of woman, no
matter how eminently qualified, still
resides in her kitchen,” she stressed.
