A group, the Non-Indigene Women Movement for A A Sule has condemned the nude protest by some women in Nassarawa state over the outcome of the March 18th Governorship and State House of Assembly election.

In a statement on Saturday, the group described the nude protest as a desperate move from the opposition to debase women in the state to achieve their political ambition.

It said the display of naked bodies of women is a shame and must not be encouraged.

The statement by its coordinator Mrs. Ogbu Francisca called on women not to cheapen themselves through such despicable way for politicians especially the ones who will only identify themselves during electioneering periods.

Last week, some women led by Mrs. Rebecca Oboshi picketed the INEC office after the declaration of the Governorship election, which the incumbent Governor of Nasarawa State, Abdullaahi Sule was declared winner.

The incident took a different turn on Friday, when they stepped out naked while demanding that their alleged stolen mandate be returned.
