2015: APC women want vice presidential slot
Women in the All Progressives Congress, under the auspices of the All Progressives Women Group, want the party to zone the position of the party’s Vice President to women in the party.
In a statement signed by the President and General and Public Relations Officer of the group, Hajia Larai Kolo and Victory Senes respectively, the group said as the people with the highest number of votes, the women deserve better treatment.
According to the group, it is common knowledge that women have done creditably well in their chosen professions both nationally and internationally and should, therefore, be given due recognition by the party.
The statement, which was made available to The Nation in Abuja Thursday reads: “We, the women in the APC, under the auspices of All Progressive Women Group, are strongly advocating and insisting for a female vice-president in Nigeria. Our reason is not to be at loggerheads with men folk, but rather to consolidate the role of women leadership and nation building.
“Today it is glaring that women, both at national and international levels, are doing very well in their areas of assignment. Therefore, we can match and compete with men in various leadership roles.
“The unique governing style that the APC is proposing can only be achieved, if women are given the right of place in the polity.”
