The APC group looks at atiku and obi to empower women


A women’s support group for the All Progressives Congress, the Progressive Sisters’ Network, said the Tinubu/Shettima joint ticket represents the best hope for justice for Nigerian women.

This was included in a statement from Rinsola Abiola, the network’s national coordinator, while making welcome remarks at the inauguration of the group’s leadership and the launch of its sister-to-sister campaign in Abuja last Tuesday.

“Our primary goal right now is to use our quota to help mobilize women’s votes for our father, leader and presidential candidate Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his running mate Senator Kashim Shettima; and that has led to the conceptualization of the sister-to-sister campaign.

Our message is simple: the Tinubu/Shettima ticket represents the best hope for justice for Nigerian women, and this claim is supported by both men’s track records in public service.”

Abiola went on to say that Tinubu not only prioritized women’s empowerment in Lagos State, but also provided political mentorship to many women.

“I dare say that there is no leader in the Nigerian political arena who can claim to empower and mentor as many women as Asiwaju, and I challenge other presidential candidates and their supporters to tell us what they do have done for women.”

She also hailed Tinubu’s running mate Kashim Shettima’s gender mainstreaming efforts during his tenure as Borno state governor, saying he has four female commissioners and several projects to empower women.

The event was attended by Dr. Asabe Vilita Bashir, National Coordinator of the Tinubu/Shettima Women Presidential Campaign Team, Safaa Adam, a prominent member of the party’s pro-Tinubu movement, Stella Okotete, Executive Director of NEXIM Bank, and former National Women’s Participation Chair of the APC, Ismaeel Ahmed , Senior Special Assistant to the President and former national party youth leader, and Babajide Akeredolu, Director General of Ondo State Performance and Project Implementation Monitoring Unit, among others.
