According to the women, they said; “We write to bring to your knowledge and swift action to call to order and tender an unreserved apology to ever cheerful and decent delta women the act of the gender bender Honourable Monday Igbuya the Speaker of delta state House of Assembly who has taken solace in not only attacking the delta women he ought to honouably represent and speak for but dishonourably branding them with vituperations and demeaning innuendos thereby casting aspersions on their goodwill and legacies.”
“It is common knowledge your Excellency, the senate president that the abuse of these women by Honouable Monday Igbuya, calling them ”Big Arse” in the most derogatory appendage to virtuous women by decency has spread and still spreading like wild fire in the south-south region and its environs. In the natural cause of events, we proceeded from these women, got nurtured and even after finding our feet continue to look on to them for succor, support, prayers and encouragement. Even in the face of daunting dangers and attacks, yet they continue to be our pillar of salt positively seasoning our thoughts.
“Therefore one begins to wonder while an Honorable Speaker should heap barrage of indecency and unsavoury remarks on these great women. By the remarks of HON. Monday Igbuya, our women reputation, dignity, womanhood and virtue have been brought to public odium and ridicule,” the women wrote.
“We write to your good office to aid in solidarity in the total condemnation of this act of a legislator. As the mother umbrella of the law making house, we appeal you call to order Hon Igbuya Monday to refrain from the usage of such sarcastic language on virtuous women and tender an unreserved apology to deltans in general.
As activists affiliated to international bodies, we will not hesitate to make a public outcry to the international community as we equally believe that you can caution a law maker irrespective of state.”
