In what could be tagged display of power, Mariam
Nneamaka Ali, the wife of a former National Chairman of the
Peoples Democratic Party, Dr. Ahmadu Ali, on Friday gave
the Delta State Chairman of the party, Chief Peter
Nwaoboshi an ‘executive slap’ for disobeying her.
Nwaoboshi got what he never bargained for at the state
secretariat of the party in Asaba, the Delta State capital,
during the party’s meeting.
The Eagle Online reports that trouble started when the
chairman asked Mrs. Ali to relocate from her seat during a
meeting of the party’s stakeholders.
His reason was that the seat Mrs. Ali was occupying was
meant for the state’s Deputy Governor, Prof. Amos Utuama,
who was also scheduled to attend the meeting but she paid
deaf ears to the order.
Angered by his order, the woman allegedly descended on him
with what could be termed an executive slap.
It was gathered that some party members present during the
confrontation brought the situation under control when
Nwaoboshi tried to retaliate.
