In order to ensure proper representation, women in the Chikun/Kajuru Federal Constituency have been urged to vote for the female Representatives running for leadership positions in the area.
This was said during a media discussion at the NUJ secretariat in Kaduna by Hauwa Abdullahi Gambo, the African Democratic Congress candidate for the Chikun/Kajuru Federal district.
Hauwa Abdullahi Gambo emphasized that electorates must trust strong women with their ballots because they don’t play about with the responsibilities entrusted to them, which is shown in the way they manage their families.
“What gives you the idea that you can successfully run a nation without a woman if you can’t even successfully run your own home?
Without a question, more issues are resolved when women are in positions of leadership.”
“I want to reassure you that one of the most crucial areas of nation building that would have served as a strong piller has been neglected for decades, the women folks;
and when we bring them back to the table of leadership, we will start to heal and return back on the path of sustainable development.”
She said, “Women have stood up today and are volunteering themselves for service; we are asking you for your votes because it will count.”
“i come with a mandate of rehabilitating, supporting and building the women of my constituency because they have suffered from those whose spouses and children have been killed or kidnapped and those that are displaced which she said if given the mandate, they will be supported and reintegrated back to the society”, she added
Talking on the number of graduates running the street especially in Chikun/Kajuru Federal Constituency, the house of representatives hopefully reassured that she will train unemployed youths and export them for job opportunities outside the country.
“we are going to mop up the number of our unemployed youths and expose them to both local and global opportunities in ICT capacity building and the use of the internet; and we will remind them of their responsibilities to leadership in their respective homes and constituency”,she said.
She decried the state of the nation where basic necessities of life are still at the forefront of discussion.
“We are still discussing issues that are readily resolved with deliberate, intentional, and effective leadership, such as the education of girls, children who are not in school, newborn mortality, and maternal mortality,” she said.
If given the mandate, Hauwa Abdullahi Gambo is confident that, within the following four years, the constituency would see enhanced leadership that is focused on all the areas that require attention.
