The protesters, who also took their protest to the governor’s office at Oke Mosan and the Nigerian Union of Journalists secretariat in Abeokuta, gave the NWC and the National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole, up till Friday to address their grievances.

Led by the Chairman of Ilugun Local Council Development Authority, Mofoluke Soremekun, and other women leaders in the three senatorial districts, the protesters insisted that they voted for Akinlade and not Dapo Abiodun as announced by the national leadership of the APC.

The women had earlier blocked the entrance to the Governor’s Office before moving to the Arcade Ground within the state secretariat where the party Chairman, Derin Adebiyi, addressed them.

The Deputy Governor, Yetunde Onanuga, while addressing the protesters, told them that she would follow them to occupy Abuja when it was time.
