300, 000 Women Threaten To Protest Half- Clothed Over Pressure To Cancel A/Ibom PDP Guber Primaries



The 300,000 strong Nka Ufon Iban women group in Akwa
Ibom State is threatening to stage a public protest half-
clothed, if the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party
succumbs to pressure and cancels the result of the recent
governorship primaries of the party in the state.
The threat is already generating ripples in official circles as it
is feared the situation could become violent because it could
be hijacked by hoodlums.
The women’s threat was contained in a communiqué read
by the leader of the group, Obongawan Arit Inyang, at the
end of an emergency meeting held in Uyo, the state capital,
on Wednesday.
They urged the PDP leadership not to succumb to the
current pressure from such people in order not to throw the
party and indeed the state into confusion.
Advising the party leaders to learn from the ugly experience
of a few state chapters of the party following controversial
primaries, the women cautioned against any action that
could rubbish the enviable records of the PDP administration
in Akwa Ibom over the years.
It would be recalled that Mr. Udom Gabriel Emmanuel,
believed to be the preferred choice of Governor Godswill
Akpabio, emerged as candidate of PDP for the 2015
governorship election in the state.
