Women Holds Rally In Abuja, Begs Atiku To Accept Defeat (Photos)
“Two Million Women Rally for Democracy”, a group of women under the endorsement stormed the Federal Capital Territory on Friday to plead with Atiku to concede defeat.
Mary Onuche, who is the leader of the group is concerned that Atiku’s failure to accept the result of the February might lead to anarchy.
Her statement read;
“Fortunately for Nigeria, our democracy, though still young, has continued to evolve in ways that reassure us that things can only get better.
One such leap is the development in 2015 when the then President Jonathan called to congratulate the then winner of the presidential election, incumbent President Buhari, even before the votes’ tally was completed.
That singular act of patriotism is today hailed as the benchmark of the level of statesmanship befitting of candidates in our elections. May God bless Mr Jonathan, the hero of our modern democracy.
We therefore call on Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to emulate the statesmanship of Mr Jonathan and quit his ongoing disruptive stance on the election”, she said.
