Aisha Buhari Advocates Increased Women Participation In Politics
Wife of the President, Mrs. Aisha Buhari has called on more women to participate in politics, so as to make it easy to actualize the 35 percent affirmative action.
Mrs. Buhari made the remark while receiving All Progressives Congress, APC State Women Leaders, who paid her a courtesy visit on Monday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
She called on the Women Leaders to mobilize female members of the APC across the country and also encourage candidates with capacity for leadership and integrity to contest for elective positions in order to achieve this.
The wife of the President commended the Women Leaders over the unity they have exhibited, saying it has given her courage.
“It is this unity that has led you to come up with a forum to speak with one voice. I hope this unity will endure, even among women at the state level and at the grassroots. I urge you to continue to support the activities of the party,” Mrs Buhari said.
