The First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan, has said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is the only party that has the interest of Nigerian women. Patience, who made the remark at the PDP Presidential Campaign Rally in Enugu on Friday, thanked the Igbo people for voting for President Goodluck Jonathan in 2011.
She, however, urged women to vote for Jonathan for a second term because he would further “uplift their status and presence in government.” “PDP is the only party that has the interests of women at heart. “Women should vote for a president who gave us 35 per cent affirmative action and the opportunity to be heard. “Women who are yet to collect their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) should endeavour to do so to be able to vote for the president in February,” she said. Recalling how her and Jonathan were in Enugu in 2011 to solicit of the support of the Igbo, she said, “we promised them that they would not enter the villa through the backdoor and we fulfilled our promises. “Today, we have come again to solicit for your votes for better benefits to Igbo and the womenfolk.” She also said if her husband is voted in for a second term, he would make the country better and more developed.
