Women in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have expressed confidence in the ability of a President Goodluck Jonathan-led administration in 2015 to guarantee more elective positions for Nigerian women.
Mrs Kema Chikwe, PDP National Woman Leader, said this at the presentation and launch of the PDP Women in Power calendar on Thursday in Abuja.
“We are confident that when President Jonathan returns in 2015, women would be talking about 50 per cent, no longer 35 per cent affirmative action.
“As we give him unequivocal, undiluted, unreserved support and as we match with him to 2015, PDP women will reach the promise land,” Chikwe said.
She expressed gratitude to the Jonathan-led administration for opportunities it gave to women to achieve their optimum potential through elective and other political appointments.
She said that the launch of the calendar was the first of its kind since the inception of the PDP.
According to her, it is aimed at raising funds to promote the effort of the party geared, specifically, toward rural development and to empower women. (NAN)
