Nigeria’s First Lady, Patience Jonathan, has declared that the Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, will continue to rule Nigeria for the next 60 years.
Mrs. Jonathan, represented by the Minister of Women Affairs, Zainab Maina, spoke at the party’s women rally in Sokoto on Tuesday.
She said that Nigerian women had got their fair share and attention under Jonathan’s administration by holding about 50 per cent of the posts.
“The president has fulfilled all the promises he has made to Nigerian women in 2011 and he will do more if re-elected,’’ she said.
The first lady also said that the president had 13 women in his cabinet, and had empowered women in many ways.
She said that the president was also working tirelessly to curb the menace of Boko Haram insurgency.
While commending women in the state for their sustained support to the PDP, She urged them collect their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs).
“Your PVCs are your power which will help you to cast your votes for the PDP candidates at all levels,’’ she said.
This, she said, would ensure that women were not disenfranchised to vote.
The first lady also called on mothers in the state not to allow their children to be used to cause a breach of the peace before, during and after the general elections.
The first lady commenced the distribution of some “empowerment materials” to women in the state.
The materials included 1,200 bags of rice, 5,000 wrappers, 5,000 bundles of guinea brocade, 800 women wears, 2,000 rubber mats, 800 children’s wears and 800 blankets.
