President’s wife woos Delta women
• APC group accuses PDP of using insurgency to avoid polls
WIFE of Nigeria’s President, Dame Patience Jonathan, yesterday at Orerokpe, Delta State, urged women in the area to vote for President Goodluck Jonathan.
At a rally organised by the Delta State chapter of the Women of Change Initiative, Mrs. Jonathan said this administration has empowered more women than any other, adding that women have now become heads of organisations hitherto the exclusive preserve of men.
She said Nigeria belongs to all the constituent units that make up the country and that other units should equally be given the opportunity to rule.
At the rally attended by Delta State Governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, his wife, Roli; the PDP governorship candidate, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa and other personalities, Mrs. Jonathan said her husband is the best candidate to rule the country.
She appealed to all women in the state to collect their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs).
Insurgency and the polls
Meanwhile, the All Progressive Congress Vanguard for Peace and Tranquility in the north-eastern states has accused President Goodluck Jonathan and the PDP of allegedly using the insurgency challenge to avoid the election.
