Abuja Grounded As Patience Jonathan Holds Women Rally to Honour Husband
A rally of women drawn from the 36 states of the Federation organised by the National Council for Women Society to celebrate President Goodluck Jonathan for his contribution to women empowerment, today grounded the Abuja, Nigeria’s Federal Capital Territory.
The event, which was held at the Eagles Square, effectively cut off workers from the imposing Federal Secretariat on both Shehu Shagari Way and Ibrahim Babangida Road, forcing them to trek for miles to the office.
Residents and visitors to Abuja, were subjected to unwarranted restriction and security cordon as there was heavy presence of security operatives in and around Eagle Square where the event held. All roads leading to the Eagle Square were closed and traffic diverted.
As vehicular and human traffic was effectively cut off from all the routes leading to the venue of the First Lady’s rally, tagged, “Nigerian Women Rally for Peace and Empowerment”, frustrated motorists were funnelled to any available space, thereby leading to a chaotic traffic snarl for most part of the day.
During the event, First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan, took time off to sing and dance with women whom the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN said are more than 10,000 from the 36 states of the Federation.
