Why women will get 35% of Atiku’s Govt. appointments if elected !!

Presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar, said at the PDP Women Conference that he had no fear of handing over the country to women.

The conference with the theme; “Call for Action”, held on Friday in Abuja.

Atiku praised the women for organizing the conference, saying that in his three decades in politics, women had been consistent in voting and he had enjoyed tremendous support from them.

“I have practically seen it, when we used to vote through queues not through ballot papers, if I stand as a candidate and I turn my back to look at the lines that are supporting me, the women queues have always been three times those of the men.


“Therefore, it is the reason why we said we are going to give you more than 35 per cent, because your numbers and your pattern of voting justified that commitment.


“Therefore, between youth and women you have 70 per cent of the government. This is to prepare you to take over governance, to take over this country and make it work again,” Atiku said.

PDP National Chairman, Mr Uche Secondus, who graced the conference with his wife, described Atiku as a President that Nigeria had been waiting for.


Secondus described Atiku as resourceful, energetic, industrious and innovative with capability to rule Nigeria.

“When Abubakar is elected this country will be rated as the number one on the African continent”.

“The forthcoming election will be watched across the globe. Nigeria will make the world stand still to watch the Feb. 16 election. So, there should be no manipulation,” Secondus said.


First wife of the PDP Presidential Candidate, Mrs Titi Abubakar, urged women to vote for her husband and protect their votes to make sure it counts.

Titi said “we should not make ourselves dancers, it is now time to go back to our polling units and wards, and propagate Abubakar to make Nigeria a great country”.

At the event were female lawmakers, women from different support groups, civil society organisations, and different professions.

Mrs Margret Obi, Wife of PDP presidential candidate’s running mate, Peter Obi, was also at the conference.
