ENUGU– The Zonal Women Leader, All Progressive Congress, (APC) South East, Diyioke Uchenna has reiterated the call for the significant inclusion of women in the political and economic leadership of the country; insisting that as the 2023 elections approach, Nigeria must as a matter of urgency address the sizable gender gaps that undermine women election and participation in the governance.

Diyioke who made the call while addressing leadership and stakeholders of the Women Wing of the Party, at the South East Zonal of the Party in Enugu appealed to the leadership of all the major political parties in the country to use the opportunity of the 2023 general elections to redress the gender gap and imbalance in the political and economic leadership of the country.

Speaking further on the issues, Diyioke lamented that a situation where only paltry 11.2 per cent of women were members of current 9th Assembly, was totally unacceptable, urging Women, especially the APC Women to rise to the occasion by making themselves more visible.

While thanking National Working Committee (NWC) of APC for their decision to make the Expression of Interest and Nomination forms free for capable female aspirants in the forthcoming 2023 general elections, Diyioke added that it showed that the leadership of APC was gender sensitive and poised to mainstream APC women.

Diyiokeh also used the occasion to appeal to all women in the South East of Nigeria to ensure that they procured their Permanent Voters Cards (PVC) because their vote is the power that would enable them to elect leaders of their choice.

Diyiokeh to lead the APC women in the South East to greater heights, describing her as humble, humane and loyal party person, who grew from the grassroot.

The meeting was the maiden meeting of the Zonal Women Leader for Women leaders and stakeholders in Enugu to plan, mobilize and strategize towards the 2023 elections.

Diyioke revealed that a similar meeting would be held in the remaining four States in the South East in couple of weeks to come.
