Wife of the President, Mrs Aisha Muhammadu Buhari, has commended women members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the South East for doing a wonderful job of mobilising women. “It is a fact that women determine the outcome of elections; therefore it is important to mobilise more women to ensure that our great party is reelected to continue the good work that it is doing,” She said. According to a statement by her media aide, Suleiman Haruna, she was speaking during a courtesy visit by members of South East Women for Buhari, a political group, on Wednesday 29th August, 2019 at the State House, Abuja.
Mrs Buhari also attested to the success of the mobilisation drive which has resulted in a high number of women aspirants from the zone, expressing the hope that this mobilisation will lead to a more peaceful elections that will produce more able and competent women to take over as many offices as possible, especially at the grassroots.
“Women need to be in political offices for them to make a difference in the lives of their families” she said, promising to support female aspirant across party lines.
Mrs Buhari called on officials and members of the APC to ensure party supremacy, respect party constitution and shun divisive tendencies. She also called for more inclusion, especially of women.
Earlier, wife of Imo State governor, Mrs Nkechi Okorocha, who led the delegation said the women came to congratulate Mrs Buhari on her recognition by two Korean universities, which includes a Doctorate, and to present South East Women for Buhari, a political group in support of the ideology of President Buhari with a determination to return him to office in 2019.
Coordinator of the group, Juliet Ibekaku-Nwagwu said the President has done well in all respects and deserves another term in office to continue the good work he is doing.
She noted that why they have formed the group is to ensure that the South East stands behind Buhari in the next general elections.
The event was attended by women party leaders including national woman leader of the APC, Salamatu Baiwa, national president of National Council for Women Societies, Mrs Gloria Shoda and Dame Pauline Tallen.
