The campaign for President Jonathan’s re-election bid has begun. On Thursday, a mini campaign support rally was held in Abuja. Speaking at the event, the PDP National woman leader, Amb.Kema Chikwe expressed that she was optimistic that the next dispensation would be more favorable for women in the party.
“We need to start moving fast to prepare women for future elections. Until we elect 35 per cent or more of women in the legislature, the impact of our progress will not be complete. We know of course that next dispensation will attract possibly PDP female governors and more deputy governors….
We are even more confident that when President Goodluck Jonathan returns in 2015, women would be talking about 50 per cent no longer 35 per cent. As we give him unequivocal, undiluted, unreserved and unlimited support and as we march with him to 2015, PDP women will reach the promised land.” She said.
