Show Of Shame: Female Lawmakers Fight At Airport, Clothes Torn

Posted by admin on 2007/9/12

By Emma Una/Calabar

Two members of the Cross River State House of Assembly disgraced themselves publicly when they fought each other and tore their clothes in the process. The lawmakers are Honourable Uduak Akiba representing Calabar Municipality and Hon Pauline Ekuri of Etung State Constituency. P.M.News gathered this morning that the women engaged themselves in the show of shame at the Margaret Ekpo International Airport last weekend while they were returning from Abuja.

The duo, who are among the three women in the State House of Assembly, were part of the delegation of Mrs. Obioma Imoke, wife to Cross River State Governor, Senator Liyel Imoke, who visited Hajia Turai Yar’Adua in Abuja where she went to present her poverty alleviation plan to the First Lady.

The duo do not see eyeball to eyeball since 2003 when they were in the Women Affairs Commission, our source said. “The presence of one of them in the same flight stirred up anger which led to sharp exchanges while aboard the Virgin Nigeria flight to Calabar,†said our source.

Appeals by other members of the delegation and passengers to the ladies to stop the quarrel fell on deaf ears as they allegedly hurled invectives at each other.

According to our source who was part of the delegation and witnessed the shameful incident, “shortly after touch down at the Calabar Airport , Uduak Akiba decided to engage her colleague in a fight. The bulky woman punched and scratch the light complexion Ekuri who was her former boss and inflicted severe injuries on her.â€

Efforts by Mrs. Ekama Awara, Commissioner for Women Affairs, to separate the women failed as they took advantage of the absence of Obioma Imoke who was not in the flight, to fight each other and eventually their clothes were torn.

The animosity between the two ladies has been simmering since 2003 when Pauline Ekuri, who holds a doctorate degree was brought in by Duke to head the Women Affairs Commission in his second tenure while Uduak was engaged her Special Assistant.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
