Women of all walks of life gathered in Abuja on Tuesday in solidarity with the 2023 Presidential aspiration of Kogi state governor, Yahaya Bello. The women, made up of over 600 groups drawn from the six geo-political zones of the country.
The women, under the umbrella of Women United for Yahaya Bello, WUYABEL, after their solidarity walk, tagged, “One Million Women March for Yahaya Bello”, maintained that they were ready to demonstrate their solidarity for the governor ahead of the 2023 polls.
The Global President, WUYABEL, Dr. Hannatu Abubakar Adeeko, commended the governor for what he has done for women since assuming power. Adeeko, a consultant physician, who flew into Nigeria from the United States for the event, said Kogi is what it is today because of the strategic positions being held by women in the Bello-led government.
“Nigerian women have thrown their weight behind Governor Yahaya Bello to show their appreciation for his support and because of the capacity he has displayed in various areas such as security, education, unity of his people and other critical areas posing challenges to the entire country,” she said.
Similarly, the Iyaloja-General, South-West, Mrs. Nike Aroloye Akingboye, said with the massive turnout, the women of Nigeria, regardless of tribe or religion, had shown that they were really united behind their own.
“Market women are in total support of the governor and would mobilize massively for him if he declares for Presidency.”
