FCT, Abuja - Barrister Maurice Oru Ebam, the national youth leader of the Allied Peoples Movement (APM), critiqued the decision of the party's leadership to endorse Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The APM is one of the 19 political parties jostling for the presidential seat, with the party producing Princess Chichi Ojei as the sole female presidential candidate for the 2023 election.
Reports making the rounds on Friday, February 17, revealed that the party's national leadership had cut ties with the female presidential candidate.
In reaction to this development, Barr. Ebam, in a statement made available to Legit.ng revealed that the actions of the party leaders were an apparent misogynistic attribute aimed at marginalising women and youths.''

The APM chieftain said the APM leadership sold themselves cheaply by deceiving Nigerians by filling a woman as Presidential candidate and going behind to endorse Atiku Abubakar of PDP for Presidency.
He called on Nigerian women to challenge the status quo and change the narrative that women do not support women.
He further noted that women form an integral part of society and should be allowed to serve in every capacity since men's leadership had failed in the past and present.
Barr. Ebam maintained that his principal, Princess Ojei, is embedded with all the right attributes that qualify her as a leader and should be allowed to serve.

Meanwhile, Women's participation in Nigeria politics might just be under threat as alleged by the presidential candidate of the Allied Peoples Movement.
Chichi Ojei accused her party of plotting a merger with the Peoples Democratic Party thereby undermining her effort to become Nigeria's first-ever female president.
According to Ojei, who is APM's 2023 flag bearer, she is not a party to APM's plan to merge with the PDP.
