APC National Convention: Group mobilises for Yahaya Bello



AHEAD of the National Convention to elect the flag-bearer of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the 2023 Presidential election, the Nigerian Women Arise For Nigeria (NIWAFON) has commenced what it described as aggressive mobilisation of delegates for Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State.

  The group said in a statement that over 600 women groups, drawn from different parts of the country, and across all sectors of the economy, were involved in the project. They described the movement as the first-of-its-kind, one-on-one delegates’ persuasion.

  Some of the women groups involved in the movement include: Non-Governmental Organisations, Civil Society Organisations, professional bodies, women in media, politics, market women as well as top women entrepreneurs, among others.

  The National Coordinator of NIWAFON, Dr Hanatu Adeeko,who made the disclosure in a statement made available to newsmen on Tuesday in Lagos, said no effort would be spared in ensuring the emergence of Governor Bello as the APC Presidential candidate.

  According to her, having come to the obvious conclusion that the nation requires one with pedigree, youthfulness and capacity to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari, NIWAFON has moved in to prepare delegates by providing them with the necessary information that would guide them in making an informed choice during the party’s convention.
