The National Coordinator enjoined women in different profession to stop the habits of staying at home during the election, but get their Permanent Voter Cards (PVC), come out en-mass and vote for credible candidates, like Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as President and Prince Dapo Abiodun as the Ogun State Governor in the coming 2023 general election.
“This group consist of notable people from different professions such as lawyers, nurses, caterers, teachers and so on, that are into politics, from all the six geo-political zones of the country.
