Osun NAWOJ Charges Women On Politics
Osun State Chapter of the Nigeria Association of Women Journalists (NAWOJ) has appealed to women politicians to take up the challenge by vying for elective positions in the coming general elections.
The chairperson of the association, Mrs. Toyin Adeoye, who made the appeal during a programme on community voter education in Nigeria organised for selected women in the state by an NGO, charged women in the state to develop greater interest by participating more in politics for adequate representation in the society. She emphasised that when more women are interested in politics, the society will be better for it, insisting that women perform better when in positions of responsibility.
She implored women to love and support themselves and avoid decimation among themselves while in position of authority.
Also speaking, coordinator at the programme, Mrs Ruth Omoloye, advised women in politics never to forget their home as the home supersedes all.
Omoloye stressed the need for women to know their rights and use their voting power to vote the right people to power.
Other speakers at the occasion include Alhaja Babalola Adubi, Alhaja Nofiu and Mr Tijani who admonished women that are yet to collect their voter’s card to do so in their respective INEC local government offices.
