Middle Belt and North Central Association of Women Group (MNAW) has condemned what it described as unwarranted attacks on the chairperson of the Federal Character Commission (FCC), Dr Muheeba Dankaka.
According to the women, Muheeba is their own ambassador and an Arewa woman leader, adding that they have been silently and diligently watching the orchestrated campaigns of calumny by a few Labour Party (LP) committee members in connivance with some commissioners from few states, represented on the FCC board against her.
In a press release issued and signed by the national convener of MNAW, and the general secretary, Dr Onoche Agnes Agims and Madam Esther Tor respectively, the duo, on behalf of their group, condemned the gangster and gestapo approach orchestrated by the so-called “honourable members.”
MNAW said, “It behooves on well-meaning Nigerians to look carefully at the clandestine plots of the honourable members in seeking the assistance of disgruntled commissioners who are hell-bent on tarnishing the image of the commission, all in a bid for stomach infrastructure and mesh of porridge.”
These, they noted, are displayed openly, by accusing the chairperson of the FCC, simply because of her avowed support for the Presidency of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, “during the February 25, 2023 presidential elections.”
MNAW described the behaviourial pattern by these “disgruntled elements” as unbecoming, as “these are coming from the backdoor, as ethical crimes are being committed, by hoarding and making internal documents available to fifth columnists and traducers, all in a bid to achieve their self-serving ordinate ambitions.”
The association insisted that this is a gang-up against an executive officer who happens to be a woman and a Muslim, who has done her best to transform the organisation.
The group alleged that these same commissioners have threatened her severally that they will deal with her if she doesn’t succumb to their blackmail.
