DAILY COURIER – Reactions have continued to trail recent protests by women in Nasarawa State calling for a review of the declared results citing gross irregularities and electoral frauds.
The protesters also ask the Independent National Electoral Commission, (INEC), to do the needful by reviewing the election results and declare the People’s Democratic Party, (PDP) candidate the authentic winner.
The latest reaction is from the Spokesperson (South), to the PDP governorship candidate Nasarawa state, Hon. Jonathan IPAA, anipr mnuj, JP, at the weekend.
According to him, “We saw dozens of these democracy activists protesting half naked, demanding for just one thing: a review of the March 18th results in which Dr Ombugadu won in 9 out of the 13 LGAs of Nasarawa state.
“Without mincing words, these Amazon want the collation of results in the three wards of Tunga, Gayam and Chiroma re-collated and declared publicly.
“What every decent mind need is to support these courageous women of substance. We need to encourage them with prayers, moral words and everything humanly desire.
“They are doing what the men and youths have failed to do. These ladies are our great assets!
“If you know what it means to get a woman to undressed in the midst of men, then getting her to get totally nude before passersby and cameramen tells a whole tale of a century!”
Hon Ipaa noted that the protest is a strong message to both INEC and the incumbent governor.
“This is a strong message both Gov Abdullahi Sule and INEC shouldn’t have allowed to happened in the first place.
“Such a protest could incur the wrath of God almighty in terms of both spiritual curses and severe devine consequences on the side of the perpetrators.
“I believe INEC is under intense pressure to review the results as declared in haste under duress by the Prof Ishaya Tanko.
“The international community is also watching this shenegian like our local observers are as well as any descent mind that care about Nasarawa state and it’s democracy.
There’s hope for the recovery of our stolen mandate through INEC review or the Court trial will do justice at the tail end.”
He was of the view that: “These are very trying moments for every like mind in Nasarawa state. Fighting injustices especially, a stolen mandate by the power that be has never been an easy task for us in Nasarawa state.
“Our mothers, wives and sisters of extra ordinarily values knew this yet, have decided to take off their wrappers and bras and stage the ongoing nude protests in Lafia, Akwanga and Karu respectively.
“These women who left the comfort zone of their homes to expose the dirty electoral deals in the March 18th Governorship election in 3 controversial wards (Tunga, Gayam and Chiroma) of Awe and Lafia LGAs, are indeed, our monumental Heroes!
“They are indeed taking the risk of the APC cabal, some security agents, the rains and the scorching sun to cry loud for justice for the mandate freely given to Dr David Emmanuel Ombugadu to be recovered and declared.”
