A group of women under the auspices of the “Two-millionth Women’s Rally for Democracy in Nigeria” walked the streets of Abuja yesterday to express a passionate appeal to the NDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, to congratulate President Buhari, who was declared the winner of the presidential election last Saturday to elect and recognize defeat.
Atiku, who has since rejected the results published by INEC last week on Tuesday, February 26, said he would go to court to get compensation. He argued that the elections were characterized by massive fraud for the BTR.
The women began their march at the Unity Fountain to the Hilton district, and then went to the Forces headquarters, Eagle Square and back to the Unity Fountain.
Led by their leader, Mary Onuche, the women who carried various cardboard boxes with different inscriptions called on Atik to imitate former President Goodluck Jonathan and to congratulate Atik on his victory.
