Mrs. Aishatu Buhari, the wife of the presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress, APC, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), has urged women to work for peaceful general elections next month.
Mrs. Buhari, who was represented by Zainab Nyako, made the call on Friday in Yola, the Adamawa State capital, while addressing an APC Women Presidential Campaign Initiative town hall meeting.
According to Mrs. Nyako, women have a critical role to play towards a peaceful election and victory of APC at all levels.
“It is also imperative, for us to educate our party members on peaceful conduct before, during and after elections”, Mrs. Nyako said.
“We should avoid violence in all its ramifications because this is one area that the ruling party is looking up to discredit the efforts and successes of our party”, she added.
Mrs. Nyako also stressed the need for voter education and urged women coordinators of Buhari campaign organization in the state and local government levels to canvass for votes – door to door and person to person.
Speaking at the meeting, the Adamawa Coordinator of the Women Presidential Campaign Initiative, Faith Pukuma, and Adamawa APC Women Leader, Hauwa Koma, declared the commitment of the party’s women to mobilize voters for the APC.
They also vowed to redouble their campaign efforts in Adamawa State since it is the home state of Mrs. Buhari.
