“Nothing was given to us during Easter and Sallah” – APC women complain about Tinubu’s govt

The All Progressive Congress (APC) women leaders across all states and the Federal Capital Territory have accused President Bola Tinubu of abandoning them after his victory in the 2023 presidential election.

During a visit to Abdullahi Ganduje, the national chairman of the APC, the women expressed their grievances about being excluded from the gains of party politics.

The group’s president, Patricia Yakubu, lamented that no member was considered worthy of a political appointment or post-election reward despite their efforts to ensure the president’s victory.

Her words: “Your Excellency, the women have not been compensated for all their pains and sacrifices; we are feeling neglected.

“Since after the elections, Your Excellency may note that only one bag of rice and paper wrapper was given to the states’ women leaders from the party’s national secretariat.

“Nothing was given to us during Easter, the Ramadan fasting period and Sallah festivities. Even the palliatives that were distributed were not given to the women leaders for onward distribution to the grassroots. We, party women, waited and waited and waited to no avail. Very sad.

“Our women went through a lot at the last election. We took a great risk sleeping on the grass in open spaces at the Women Development Center in Abuja and almost every state during the electioneering period to ensure victory.”
