Two Non-governmental Organisations, Ladies of Grace and Agape Sisters,  have threatened to protest nude on April 25 if the female governorship candidate in the Taraba governorship race, Senator Aisha Alhassan, is intimidated.

Coordinator of Agape Sisters, Jean Onuh, issued the threat in Abuja on Friday, April 17, when she  briefed newsmen on the Taraba run-off election.

Onuh said Senator represents the interest of Nigerian women in the Taraba governorship poll holding on April 25.

She alleged that Alhassan is 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,’’ Onuh said. 

She called on all involved in the Taraba poll to remain neutral and urged registered voters, especially women, to ignore all kinds of intimidation to come out and cast their votes for Alhassan.
