The immediate past National Women Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Hon. Stella Okotete, has said that women from all the zones in the country are poised to elect Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as their next President in 2023.
Addressing journalists in Abuja at the Asiwaju Women Cooperative Society event held at the National Women Centre, Okotete, who is also the Executive Director, Business Development at the Nigerian Export Import Bank (NEXIM), stated that Tinubu is the best deal for Nigerian women and that, that is why she and others are working assiduously to ensure his victory and those of other APC candidates nationwide, adding that Nigeria will experience economic growth and development with the coming of Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s government in 2023.
Also, the Coordinator of the group, Chief Toyin Badmus who said the group has been in existence for over two years, submitted that the group is fully out to support the candidacy of Tinubu.
Badmus said, with Tinubu as president of Nigeria, small-scale businessmen and women would have access to funds.
She said: “Our aim is for Asiwaju to become president in 2023.
“What we are advocating for is the return of people’s banks, it was a bank where small traders used to have access to funds, but now it’s different, we know that when Tinubu enters, he is going to look into this.
“Things are going to change with his government, we are in 23 states including the Federal Capital Territory, we are not a WhatsApp group, we have our exco from the senatorial to the local government.
In her remarks, the Chairperson, BoT, AWCS, Barrister Omolara Alakija, said the group is ready to work hard for the success of the APC in 2023.
“We are ready to work for Asiwaju, we are here to show to our leaders we are united and the women will all work in their respective local governments”, she added
