Nasarawa women continue protest over gov poll dispute

In Lafia, the capital of Nasarawa State, a group of women organized a protest on Tuesday, expressing their discontent with the perceived unfair treatment of David Ombugadu, the Peoples Democratic Party’s gubernatorial candidate.

This demonstration follows the controversial decision of the Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal, which on October 2nd, removed Governor Abdullahi Sule of the All Progressives Congress from office, subsequently declaring Ombugadu as the victor.JAMB Result

However, Governor Sule challenged this ruling at the Court of Appeal, where he was reinstated as the governorship election winner. During a press briefing in Lafia, Hanatu John, who leads the protesting women’s groups, argued that the essence of democracy is to respect the popular vote. She questioned the rationale behind not recognizing the candidate with the highest number of votes as the election winner in the state.

She said, “We started this week’s protest on Monday, December 25, because celebrating Christmas seems void when our mandate was stolen from us.

We have been here since March protesting what we described as electoral injustice. During the governorship election, we voted for Ombugadu not Sule. But we are hoping that the right thing will be done at the Supreme Court.

“We are therefore, urging the judges to critically look into the governorship election results from Nasarawa State so that our mandate will be restored.”JAMB Portal

Corroborating John, another protester, Margaret Alu, said they gathered for the protest because they had not been happy since Governor Sule was declared the winner of the March 18 governorship election in the state by the Independent National Electoral Commission.NYSC Portal

“We are in anguish. We left our husbands and children behind because celebrating Christmas when we are not happy is not proper. Some of us are widows, while others are jobless because our farmlands have been taken by the herdsmen.InformationGuideNigeria

“All we seek is justice, and until our mandate is returned, we will not relent in our daily peaceful demonstrations,” she said.

The PUNCH reports that the women who dressed in black attires wielded placards with several inscriptions, such as “Count Every Vote: Protect Democracy in Nasarawa State” “Bring back our mandate: Our votes are our Rights;” and “Our farms are not safe, our husbands are killed, widows are raped,” among others.
