2015: Mariam Ali Wants to Destabilise Delta PDP, Says Nwaoboshi

News » Politics


The Delta State Chairman of  the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP),  Chief Peter Nwaoboshi,  has raised the alarm that   the wife of the former National Chairman of the party, Mrs. Nneamaka Mariam Ali,  is planning to destabilise the party in the state.

Nwaoboshi stated this yesterday at the party secretariat when the party’s Women Leader, Mrs. Felicia Adowei-Ajagu,  led hundreds of women from across the state  to  pay him solidarity visit at the party secretariat.

Mrs. Ali  and  Nwaoboshi  were  said  to have  engaged  themselves  in physical  combat  recently  during  an  occasion  at the PDP secretariat.
Nwaoboshi said her actions suggested that she had a grand plan to throw the party into disarray following the way and manner she (Ali) insulted him (Nwaoboshi) at a recent gathering of the party.

He pointed out that any woman who misbehaves would not  get any position, adding that it was important that  women  should  respect  men as any  woman  that slaps  any  member  of the party  hierarchy  would  wait  for  her waterloo on election day.

He said: “If you slap us, we will wait for you during election. To go about in the name of Mr. President and other national leaders in Abuja will not work. Those who know me very well, know also that you can’t slap me and get away with it. If you don’t get it now, you will get it later.”

He hinted that arrangements had been concluded between Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan and the other leaders of the party on how to produce three female council chairmen and several women councillors in the forthcoming council polls to boost woman participation in the politics of the state.

The PDP Women Leader, Adowei-Ajagu, in her remarks, condemned the actions of Mrs. Ali, saying those that took to the streets last week were not victorious women in the politics of the state but hired crowd, maintaining that “by their fruits, you shall know them.”

She said: “Unfortunately, last week, some hired women wore black clothes, protesting against an innocent man. They are not PDP women, in PDP, women don’t wear black, we don’t troop to streets to get what we want. We are not in the class of hired protesters.”

She said  the women who trooped out for Mrs. Ali, last week Friday alleging that Nwaoboshi committed a taboo, were hired crowd.
She  maintained that their solidarity visit would not end in Delta but “we will from here move to our party secretariat in Abuja to state the true story of what happened,” saying,  “the perpetrator was lucky that the traumatised women who were around and also saw what happened did not react.”
