The National Coordinator and founder of Arewa Female Youth Ambassadors (AFYA), Hanan Isah, has called on Northern ladies to actively participate in the upcoming elections.
Amb. Hanan, in an interview with journalists in Birnin Kebbi yesterday described the voters card as “the power of the electorates in choosing their leaders.”
The AFYA leader condemns every act of violence during the electioneering process adding that only peaceful elections will be adjudged free, fair and credible by International and Domestic observers.
In her words: “We should vote not fight; showing good example to our society and the international community.”
She said that with women constituting 48 per cent of Nigeria’s populations, political parties needed to prioritize issues of women inclusion and empowerment.
Amb. Hanan also called on Northern ladies to remain calm and peaceful after the elections, an act she said would encourage and strengthen the nation’s democracy.
