Nasir Abdul, Ilorin
The women in Kwara state chapter of All Progressives Congress (APC) have asked the party to concede deputy governorship slot for 2019 general elections to one of them.
The women made this request on Thursday in Ilorin during Kwara Central APC Stakeholders meeting held at Savannah Event Centre, Ilorin.
They berated the attitude of party leadership to the women within APC, noting that they are underestimating our influence on the electorates.
One of their representatives while speaking frowned at injustice and unfair treatment of women in Kwara APC, noting that it’s imperative to compensate them because of their voting strength.
She said: ”We are not happy with the way the party is treating. We are the engineroom of the party. Looking at all our candidates for this year elections, no woman there. We can’t continue like this.
”The party can give us deputy governorship slot. We have capable and competent hands that fit into the position. We know how to convince our children and friend to vote for APC”
