Wife of Kaduna state Governor-elect, Malam Nasir El-Rufai, Ahjia Aisha El-Rufai, on saturday received another trekker, Haruna Muhammed Salisu, in Kaduna as he journeys from Kano to Abuja in protest to what he called “injustice against gubernatorial candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Taraba state, Ahjia Aisha Al-Hassan”, to the party leaders for onward action.

Receiving the 26 years old 400 level student of Mass Communication, Bayero University Kano (BUK) Aisha El-Rufai said she was amazed, seeing a man doing what ordinarily, would have been the responsibility of a woman, protesting injustice against woman in the just concluded governorship election in Taraba state.

According to her, “He’s fighting for justice for a woman because he understands the role that women play in the overall development of the society.

“It is something we would have seen a woman doing because we know how men do when it comes to women affairs. What has been done to Madam Aisha is not just injustice but insult to the system of democracy.

“So we are happy in joining hands that we oppose what is happening, we protest against it and we hope that we will get appropriate response from those that can make this change happen.

“He has already been threatened on his way to Kaduna here. So we are hosting him here in Kaduna tonight so that he can continue his journey to Abuja by tomorrow morning.

On his part Mr Haruna,an indigent of Tafawa Balewa Local Government of Bauchi State, told journalists in Kaduna that since about 60 per cent of voters in the just concluded general election are women, then there is no reason for women to be sideline in the country’s political affairs.

“Taraba governorship election is an election robbery against Mama Taraba.
That was why I decided to trek to INEC Head Office in protest of the outcome of the governorship election in Taraba and demand for fair treatment of women in Nigerian politics.

“Women and children suffer the highest casualty especially in the North-East, even going by the number of those being rescued by the military recently.

“Therefore, since men have failed to tackle women predicaments , it is mandatory for women to be given equal opportunity in the politics of Nigeria to address those problems.That’s why I have decided to trek from Kano to Abuja to deliver my grievance,” he added.

He said he commenced his journey around 7:00am on Tuesday and arrived Kaduna on Saturday by 2:13pm
