The wife of the President, Mrs. Aisha Buhari, has congratulated the two female aspirants who won the All Progressives Congress, APC, tickets to contest for senate in Adamawa State.
Mrs. Buhari’s message was contained in a statement signed by her Media Aide, Mr. Suleiman Haruna.
EFFIEZY had reported that Binta Masi-Garba and Aishatu Dahiru had secured tickets of the APC to contest for senatorial seats in the 2019 general elections, the first of its kind in any state.
However, reacting, Aisha said that their success would encourage other women to join the political arena and contest for elective offices.
“We pray that the two women and all other APC female candidates will emerge winners at the secondary elections in 2019.’’
While calling on the candidates to remain steadfast to the APC manifesto, she appealed to them to pay special attention to women empowerment and initiate policies that would help vulnerable families, when elected.
