by Joy Ekeke
All Progressives Congress, APC, has concluded plans to establish the first National Women Caucus of the party (NAWOCA), as part of efforts to strengthen and deepen the participation of women in its decision making process.
This was disclosed by the APC National Women Leader, Hajiya RamatuTijjani Aliyu, in her goodwill message at the maiden edition of the Kwara State Women Summit of the party in Ilorin last Thursday.
According to Hajiya Aliyu, the caucus was conceived as a platform to address the need for women leaders of the party from the ward to the national levels to come together and discuss issues of common interest as members of one big political family.
NAWOCA, she further explained, “derived from the need for women in the party to show that we trust one another so that other Nigerian women can trust us”.
“We need to accommodate our differences so that we can accommodate the differences of other Nigerian women who believe in what we believe”, she said, adding that “we will show that we are of one accord so that the women of Nigeria will know that we are one family, united and prepared to provide leadership by example”.
