Aisha Buhari urges presidential candidates to adopt women as running mates:



The First Lady of Nigeria Aisha Buhari has urged presidential candidates to adopt women as their running mate in the 2023 elections.

She made this known while hosting hopeful presidential candidates to an iftar dinner at Aso Rock on Saturday, 23rd of April.

She said;

“In fact, it is high time women are adopted as running mates at all levels, considering their voting strength and active involvement in political processes. As we approach the 2023 elections with greater hope, I am confident that Nigeria will continue to grow from strength to strength on the pedestal of our democratic tenets.”

She also encouraged aspirants to engage in a free and fair election.

“It was neither contested in the court of law, nor in the court of public opinion. Therefore, the greatest end-of-tenure gift that fellow Nigerians can give to the first family is another free and globally-acknowledged fair election come 2023.”
