South-South women on Sunday criticized calls for the Senate President, Godswill Akpabio to resign.
They also described the Niger Delta Women League (NDWL), former Deputy National Spokesman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr Timi Frank and other critics of the Senate President as idle talkers and a bunch of worthless wimps.
‘’We must speak out for reason and balance. Anyone taking a thoroughly objective look at the views of the Niger Delta Women League (NDWL) has to be dismayed and shocked. All sense of logic and balance has been lost’’.
A statement issued in Port Harcourt by the South-South Women Vanguard (SSWV) applauded Akpabio for working towards the common good of the country, putting Nigeria in the right perspective and placing the interests of Nigeria ahead of his own.
‘’Senate President Godswill Akpabio is dedicated, honest and devoutly religious. He understands the country’s problems, has a good grasp of what needs to be done to resolve them and is working to make the necessary changes. Nigerians are turning to him to solve their problems’’.
The women hailed Akpabio for his morals, values and respect for Nigerians, particularly his colleagues.
‘’Desire for perverted materialism and government hand-outs are the two things motivating some traitorous individuals and groups in the country’’ the statement said.
The statement signed by Dr Margaret Ani underscored strong leadership, Akpabio’s hatred for greed and corruption.
The highly respected women in the zone described calls for Akpabio’s resignation by Niger Delta Women League (NDWL), former Deputy National Spokesman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr Timi Frank and other individuals as foolish.
‘’Senator Godswill Akpabio is the epitome of success and a stumbling block to the plans of self-interest groups’’ the statement added.
