Jandor/Funke campaign DG charges women, youths on participatory politics
The Deputy Director-General, Jandor/Funke 2023 Campaign Council, Ikeja Division, Tolu Akinwonmi, has urged youths and women to shun politics laced with acrimony, violence and chaos.
She also admonished the two to focus on ensuring that all the Peoples Democratic Party’s candidates for the presidency, governorship, Senate, House of Representatives and House of Assemblies are voted for in the coming election.
The DG, who spoke at the inauguration of the local council campaign executives, stated that it was time Nigerians took seriously, their future, by electing leaders that are not only humane, but ready to bring about desired change in the governance.
While saying that people should be allowed to vote freely for their choice candidates, Akinwonmi added that PDP is the party that could deliver the country from maladministration. She said the party’s manifesto attest to a humane government.
Her words: “Given the fact that women have been marginalised and given little recognition, while the youths have always been promised a better tomorrow, but the PDP have given both women and the youths a chance to express themselves, they have given them a voice. This could be attested to by our party’s gubernatorial candidate, Dr. Abdul Azeez Olajide Adediran’s (JANDOR) choice of running mate, Funke Akindele.
“This is the time that both youths and women show their strength by going all out for the candidates of the party, from the federal to state levels. We are not preaching politics of violence; this is the time to use our intellect and youthfulness to deliver Nigeria from the current administration. The youths must not sell their votes, the future begins now.
“We need improvement in health, education and economic sectors. We need people who really understand the economy and deliver people from poverty. See what is happening in the education sector? Our children have been at home for seven months. This ought not to be. There is a need for a positive change.”
