Women Protest, Block PH Airport Gate Over Poor Electricity, Passengers Stranded

Passengers stranded

Women from the Ipo community have blocked the entrance to the Port Harcourt airport.

As early as 7:30 am on Tuesday morning, the women from Ipo which is one of the host communities of the airport, blocked the gate at the airport roundabout, waving placards, singing, wailing, and even cooking at the gate.

Some of the inscriptions on their banner include ‘We Demand Our Citizens Rights’, ‘Ipo Women Peaceful Protest’, among others.

Channels Television gathered that the aggrieved women were trying to get government’s attention to their lack of electricity, good roads, and poor schools despite their community playing host to the airport.

As of the time of filing this report, their actions had caused a buildup of traffic as passengers could not access the airport.

This is the second time this year that the women are protesting.

It would be recalled that they protested on the 27th of March this year, but were pacified by the former Chairman of the Rivers Traditional Rulers Council, Sergeant Awuse.
