I therefore wish to call upon the APC to double its efforts in promoting women, this I believe, will serve as one of the objectives of this conference. ADVERTISEMENT “As Nigeria race towards another election, we must go beyond paying lip service to putting women in vital offices within our party and the government. We must put in place workable strategies to ensure that this actually happens, charity begins at home. “And so the APC must start by ensuring that women occupying strategic offices within the party have the most strategic roles in government. “When this happens, it will become a lot easier for us to empower the Nigerian women for the much needed leadership politically and economically. “There is no doubt that the future indeed looks bright as APC continues to lead our country. Women who have long been ignored and denied opportunities are now finding their voices gradually. This is a good omen for Nigeria, because when women shine, society shines. “I think as women have gathered here today, we are being invited by the national woman leader, and women are here cut across the country to answer the call. The governors are here, the ministers are here, the few women that are opportune to be ministers are here, the few women that are opportune to be head of government agencies and parastatals are here. Those that are opportune to be board members are here. APC has grown so much. We feel that they have done so much but we still need a little bit more. I think more needs to be done. “As the governors are here today, before we round up, we will like to know how many percentage are going to be given women in order to tally with the 35% affirmative action. The Governor of Kebbi has said a lot, we thank him for his long explanation but we need more in Kebbi State. ADVERTISEMENT “We need more women in decision making bodies from local government, state upto federal level. And the governors are here, the ball is in their hands. I think if we do not get 35% affirmative action, that we desire or that we are entitled to, we will hold the governors possible.” The First Lady also called on the Nigerian women to continue the struggle by showing greater influence, commitment and unity in the decision making process of this country, adding that, “our vintage pride lies in our shared numerical strength.”
