Presidential Candidate for PDP wife Jennifer Abubakar, has promised gender equity in government if PDP wins the presidential race.
She made the promise at discussion session with women groups in Cross River on Monday in Calabar.
She said that gender equity which was part of the programmes planned by PDP administration will be possible if women voted for the PDP party.
She charged the women to all go out and collect their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs), pointing out that there were so many uncollected cards at the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC’s) offices.
We have to start now by making sure we collect our PVCs, it is our strength.
Make sure you vote for the PDP Party on the Feb. 16 general election and make sure that everyone in your household comes out to vote for PDP, she said.
Jennifer Abubakar said that poverty was generational and could be ended through education as indicated by the PDP in its programme.
The wife of the Governor of Cross River, Dr. Linda Ayade, thanked Abubakar for coming to Cross River and said the visit had solidified the confidence of the women of the state in PDP.
Ayade said the number of registered voters in the state was a little above 1.5 million and that almost half of the number were women.
She said if the women all voted in Feb 16, the state would be delivered for PDP party, adding that Cross River was 100 per cent PDP and would vote for the party during the Presidential race.
Along with Mrs Margaret Obi, the wife of the PDP running mate, to launch some empowerment programmes for the women of Cross River.
