She threatened that teeming women supporters of the party would boycott all the campaigns and activities of the party’s governorship candidate, Mohammed Jibril Barde, as well as other candidates if an amendment is not made within three days.

According to her, the decision to quit the campaign was due to their alleged neglect by the candidate since his emergence as the party’s flag-bearer.

Addressing the protesters, the PDP Women Leader in the state, Mrs Rabi Daniel, appealed to them to be calm and exercise patience, saying the issue will be resolved amicably.
