Non-governmental Organisation (NGO), Agape Sisters, has threatened to protest unclad on April 25 if the female governorship candidate in the Taraba governorship election, Aisha Alhassan, is intimidated.

Coordinator of Agape Sisters, Mrs Jean Onuh, issued the threat in Abuja on Friday when briefing newsmen on the Taraba run-off election.

Onuh said Alhassan represented the interest of Nigerian women in the Taraba governorship poll holding on April 25. But sadly, she 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 unclad on April 25, if any official behaves funny,” Onuh said.

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