On the 8th of October 2019, the formidable and gallant women of Biafra Land shutdown the city of Aba, Abia province with a volatile and fiery protest which shook the foundation of the city of Aba. It is agreed that riot is a clear language for every human both the deaf and the blind. These indefatigable women emerged boldly with the tag, "WOMEN FOR CHANGE INITIATIVE AND EQUITY ORGANIZATION". They trooped into the streets screaming in very clear terms that the looting of our Treasury by Government Officials must Stop. They screamed very clearly that Aba must not be allowed to shut down by the THIEVING GOVERNMENT of Okezie Ikpeazu. They matched in rage calling out the Governor to declare Emergency in Aba or live to regret it.

Anyone who is familiar with Aba, can attest to the fact that Aba has gradually shutdown for any sane human to reside in. All the promises by each Government to turn things around has always turned fallacy. There is no security of lives and properties, no single Government provision of amenities, INFRASTRUCTURAL decay and Economic strangulation as a result of deplorable infrastructures.

With grievance and total agony in high spirits, the Women threatened to rebirth and lead the first Biafran women protest in Africa as a whole against the present British slavery of this contraption called Nigeria.

It is exactly 90 years today when Aba Women Riot took place. According to the Spokesperson Mrs Maryjane Ogbonna Ogbota, who stood firm and unflinching, revealed to our Correspondent that the Chairman of Aba South, in the person of MACRO AC OKAFOR tried to stop this match by bribing the women with the sum of N1000.00 (One thousand) each but unfortunately, we rejected him and his offer. We cannot be bought. We are fighting for the future of our children. No Politician can buy us over. This movement must continue and no going back.

In this 21st century, Nigerian politicians are still campaigning to build good roads, good schools, hospital, market, etc. While other countries are so advanced in technology, building nuclear weapons, etc.

To Aba South Chairman, they re-emphasized that the days of bribery and corruption has gone, that there is no passion to be found playing small in settling for a life that is less than the one they're capable of living. Furthermore, in one voice, they made it clear that their journey is not complete until there is assurance for their children's future.

Though the protest was held by the Aba South women only in conjunction with Aba North, but it didn't prevent them from matching on the agreed date and making great impact in the entire city.

They ended their protest by issuing a 100 Days ultimatum to the Abia State Government to fix the horrible roads in Aba that was built by His Excellency Sam Mbakwe over 4 decades ago or they would return with another explosive protest that will shake this contraption called Nigeria and the whole world at large.

BIAFRA remains the sure way to sanity in a failed State like Nigeria.
