APC Council Aspirant Backs Buhari on Nomination of Women For Ministerial Posts

Chris Steven, Abuja

As some women right activists continue to kick against the number of women nominated by President Muhammadu Buhari as ministers, an aspirant for the chairmanship of Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC) under All Progressives Congress (APC), Princess Adaeze Olisaelo has said that the President has much to offer the women folks in the country.

While speaking to journalists in Abuja on Monday on her ambition to become AMAC chairman in the forthcoming Area Councils election, Princess Olisaelo said that the President realised that Nigerian women played key role in his enthronement and as such would appoint more women into his cabinet.

She said that it would be too early for Nigerians to be agitated about the number of women the President has appointed noting that the few just nominated should not be the yardstick to judge him.

“We know that the President is going to appoint more women into his cabinet. He is just composing his team, so Nigerians should give him time so that he is not distracted.

He is going to do something for the women folks of this country because majority of women gave him the mandate he has today” she said

The Anambra state born politician said she would transform primary schools in AMAC if elected noting that the schools are in deplorable conditions.

She called on women in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) to support her ambition as one of their own towards the realisation of 30 percent affirmative action for women.

“If we are talking of change in AMAC, we must focus on education at the primary school level. All the schools in the satellite towns in AMAC are nothing to write about” she said
