A group of women under the aegis of Women of Honour International , on Monday urged the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) to tow the line of President Goodluck Jonathan and accept defeat in the Anambra central senatorial election recently held.

While congratulating the Senator elect for the zone, Mrs. Uche Ekwunife for her victory at the poll, National President of the group, Mrs. Nkem Odunze, also called on all the candidates of APGA, especially Chief Victor Umeh to accept the outcome of the last National Assembly elections in the state.

Odunze challenged Umeh to imitate Jonathan, adding that if the president could accept defeat, “every politician should emulate his position.

The group also called on the state Governor,  Willie Obiano to desist from sowing seed of discord among various stakeholders in the state, adding that “it has become imperative to make this call as women and mothers of this great state to urge APGA members who lost out in the just concluded National Assembly election to accept the results as the wishes of Ndi Anambra.
