Former Minister of Women Affairs Hajia Inna Ciroma has expressed the belief that she would be the first woman to be elected PDP National National Chairman.
Ciroma who returned her nomination form at PDP national secretariat on Tuesday, said this would “signal many other changes to come in our party and country.
“It will begin to send the messages that our party is prepared to break new grounds, continue to make progress and that men and women alike will at last serve this country and dedicate their lives to a better and more inclusive future.”
She promised to provide the best qualities of leadership to the party, “bearing in mind the need to be fair to all and work as a team for greater equity in our country.
“As the DNC for the North, I will particularly work with our leaders to mobilise the support that is required to see that the states lost by PDP in 2015 are all reclaimed.”
Prof. Stella Effah-Attoe who is running for National Woman Leader position, said she has “very deep interest in women affairs.
“I am very passionate about women.
Over the years I have been involved deeply in women issues.”
A group, which called itself Coalition of All PDP Friendly NGOs and Civil Society Groups is drumming support for Usman Sank Eikudan as National Youth Leader.
At a press conference by Olusegun Aderemi, the group said Eikudan has the capacity, competence and capability to be PDP National Youth Leader.
“The call to make an indelible worthwhile contribution to build and enliven the PDP youth wing could only explain why Ambassador Usman Sani Elkudan decided to throw his hat in the ring to contest the position of PDP National Youth Leader in this forthcoming elective national convention scheduled for 30th and 31st of October,2021,” Aderemi stated.
Elkudan was appointed Special Assistant (special Duties) to Taraba State governor, Arch Darius Ishaku in 2015.
