Women Groups ‘Ready To Go Nude’ For Senator Aisha Jummai Alhassan

imageTwo non-governmental organisations, Ladies of Grace and Agape Sisters, have threatened to protest nude on April 25 if Aisha Alhassan, female governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Taraba state, is intimidated.
Jean Onuh, coordinator of Agape Sisters, issued the threat in Abuja on Friday when she briefed newsmen ahead of the supplementary Taraba state governorship election scheduled for April 25.
According to Onuh, Alhassan represents the interest of Nigerian women in the election.
She alleged that Alhassan was being intimidated by her opponents and officials of the Independent National Electoral commission (INEC).
“We would have remained quiet and very neutral but for our disadvantaged background and the clamour to sustain the goals set for Nigerian women in the post Beijing Conference,” she said.
“We dare warn of adverse consequences should the establishment known as the Taraba cabal insist on intimidating a female contestant in the race. We will mobilise hundreds of thousands of Nigerian women to protest nude on April 25, if any official behaves funny.’
She called on all involved in the Taraba poll to remain neutral, urging registered voters, especially women, to ignore all kinds of intimidation to come out and vote for Alhassan.
After declaring the election inconclusive on April 13, INEC announced plans to organise a supplementary election. Clearly unimpressed, Alhassan has called for outright cancellation of the April 11 exercise and the conduct of an entirely new election.
