IRONSI’S WODOW PLEDGES SUPPORT FOR ATIKU
Mrs Victoria Aguiyi Ironsi, the wife of the Nigeria’s first Military Head of State, has promised to lead Abia women to vote for Atiku/Obi of the PDP in next month’s presidential elections to ensure that they win the election, saying Atiku/Obi presidency would restore lost hope to Nigerians.
Accordingly, Madam Ironsi has urged all Abia women to come out to massively vote for the Atiku/Obi presidency on February 16, 2019, saying that they are tested administrators with good hearts to change the people’s lives for the better. She spoke yesterday, in Umuahia, at a Special Town Hall for Abia Women with the theme: “Let’s Talk” organised by Atiku Abubakar’s wife, Mrs. Jennifer Atiku Abubakar and wife of the Vice Presidential candidate, Margret Peter Obi.
She urged the large number of women drawn from the 17 Local Government Councils of the State to get their permanent voters card, PVCs, and use them wisely. In her welcome remarks, wife of Abi State Governor, Deaconess Nkechi Ikpeazu commended the wives of the candidates for organising the town hall meeting and assured them of the votes of Abia women.
Addressing the women, Atiku’s wife urged them to change the bad situation in Nigeria by turning out in their large numbers with their PVCs and vote for Atiku/Obi ticket on February 16, 2019. Jennifer Atiku reminded the women that when there is bad governance resulting in hunger and hardship, when their husbands can no longer pay for rents, they are always the people that bear the brunt as according to her, “it is the case today when some families hardly eat a meal”.
She said that the ruling party, APC, has failed in their promises, including provision of security and assured the women that her husband and Peter Obi would provide adequate security to enable them to freely pursue their legitimate businesses.
