Anambra Women’s After Governorship Election Protest. Women spokesperson opens up on their journey to state capital.
**we were told that anyone individual willing to go Awka to protest will receive N5,000 cash and APC party uniform, but they paid us only N2,000.
Mrs Njideka Nwaigwe was the spokeswoman for the women who protested last Sunday in Awka, Anambra state capital, about the conduct of the election and Ngige’s dismal performance in the election.
Mrs Nwaigwe narrated her story at Aroma junction late Sunday evening after they finished the Protest rally assignment Awka.
She recounted how she was getting ready to go to church when her neighbour called her that the bus has come to take them to Awka for protest rally.
She was told that each individual willing to go will receive N5,000 cash and APC party uniform. She hurriedly took off her church clothes and rushed to the venue and they were taken to Awka. Inside the bus, they were educated on what to do by one man who kept on talking all through the drive from Ezinifite to Aroma.
He kept on telling them to roll on the floor and shout and cry, to rain abuses on Jega and INEC and Peter Obi. He said that they will be watching for who performed the best as the person will get extra N2,000. “This was what brought us to Awka”, she added.
“Now, we were paid N2,000 on reaching Awka instead of N5,000 and most of us did not have the vehicle to go back to our various towns.
