- ISSUE 72 HOURS ULTIMATUM FOR IHEDIOHA TO TENDER A PUBLIC APOLOGY
The last is yet to be heard of the slapping saga involving the wife of the Action Alliance governorship candidate in Imo State, His Excellency Ugwumba Uche Nwosu, and the governor of Imo State, His Excellency Rt. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha. This is as a group of PDP women leaders under the aegis of PDP Women Liberators has issued a 72 hours ultimatum for the governor to tender a public apology for the harassment meted on the eminent Imo woman or risk their wrath.
Speaking on behalf of the Imo PDP Women Liberators, the leader of the group Lolo Adiela Uzoma expressed disappointment with the action of thr governor, regretting that such action has the tendency of portraying the Party in bad light before Nigerians. According to her;
"Nothing has so ridiculed the image of our Party than the molestation meted on one of Imo's brightest female stars, Mrs. Uloma Nwosu, by an aide of our governor, and the leader of our Party in this State. We wish to first of all distance ourselves and all PDP women in Imo State from such action."
"We are the nucleus of PDP in this State, as we hold the power button of the Party. We wish to clearly State our disappointment with the governor for his silence over this regrettable abuse on women by his agents. Even though Uloma Nwosu is not a member of our Party, the PDP Women Liberators is built on thr vision of promoting the Party as gender friendly and sensitive and we categorically condemn any action that portrays our Party otherwise."
"We hereby demand that the governor; 1. Tenders an unreserved public apology to Mrs. Uloma Nwosu and her family within 72 hours of this publication. 2. Brings to book, everyone involved in this abuse of women. 3. Takes steps to ensurensures that such abuse on women is stopped forthwith."
"The PDP Women Liberators also tenders an unreserved apology to Mrs. Uloma Nwosu, whom we consider an Amazon of grace and enterprise. We apologize to thr family of the immediate past governor of the State and to Chief Uche Nwosu for this unwarranted abuse."
Recall that the PDP under Chief Emeka Ihedioha's leadership has been under fire for its insensitivity to thr womenfolk in her midst. The Party did not field any female candidate in the last election and women have got less than ten percent in all appointments made so far by the governor.
