Two Non-governmental Organisations, Ladies of Grace and Agape Sisters, have threatened to protest nude on April 25 should Taraba State female Gubernatorial Candidate, Senator Aisha Alhasan is intimidated.
Coordinator of Agape Sisters, Mrs Jean Onuh, issued the threat in Abuja on Friday when she briefed newsmen on the Taraba run-off election.
Onuh said Senator Alhassan, popularly known as Mama Taraba, represented the interest of Nigerian women in the Taraba governorship poll holding on April 25.
She alleged that Alhassan was being intimidated by her opponents and officials of the Independent 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,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 said.
She also called on all involved in the poll to remain neutral, and urged registered voters, especially women, to ignore intimidation and go out to vote for Alhassan.
