Sarah Jibril blames women

Sarah Jibril blames women Sarah Jibril says women deserted their own.

One of the presidential aspirants of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Sarah Jibril, yesterday said she was the only one that voted for herself in the party’s primary election held recently, as she blamed her defeat on the National Council of Women Society, Ministry of Women Affairs, and women leaders of the party.

Mrs. Jibril, while reflecting on the single vote recorded by her at the PDP presidential primary at the premises of the Federal High Court, Abuja, yesterday, said the single vote will continue to haunt the conscience of the womenfolk and the entire nation

“That vote was of me, by me and for me. That vote has been seriously pricking the conscience of women, Nigerians, PDP Board of Trustees, and the political class. I thank God for not allowing any other vote to cause confusion. I sympathise with the ignorance of the women which is till now affecting the conscience of women in Nigeria.

“Why are the womenfolk trying to use the media to call me a serial contestant sarcastically? I have forgiven them. The political class should stop hijacking the conscience of Nigerian women who constitute the engine of the nation,” she said.

Mrs. Jibril is in court against the emergence of former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, as the consensus candidate of the North on the platform of Adamu Ciroma-led Northern Political Leaders Forum.

The former presidential aspirant, who made the clarification against the backdrop of newspaper reports from Kaduna that she had taken PDP to court over Jonathan, said at no time did she sue either the party or Jonathan over the last primary.

Mrs. Jibril explained that she went to court to challenge the emergence of Mr. Atiku as a Northern presidential candidate by the Adamu Ciroma’s group because the policy that led to the endorsement was discriminatory against her and the womenfolk.

According to her, as a northerner and a presidential aspirant, she was not screened by the NPLF before arriving at the consensus arrangement. She added that her not being considered by the forum was discriminatory and contravenes treaties which recognise womenfolk and their inalienable rights to political aspirations.

“I am not in court against Jonathan who is the presidential candidate of our party. No! Sarah Jubril contested as one of the three candidates of PDP and after the results of the primary were declared, I congratulated President Jonathan in the spirit of political sportsmanship. I am, therefore, a political heroine today. I am a true democrat; I am in politics to rescue the future of Nigerians.

“The case in court is a constitutional issue; I have no personal grievance against Atiku. He has continued to remain a product of constitutional breaches. PDP should have queried the sudden reappearance of Atiku for the presidency after his over two years exit. He should have been given 18 months probation. For me, querying this does not mean I have taken Jonathan to court,” Mrs. Jibril said.
