According to a communique signed by the national President, all 36 states presidents plus FCT, NCWS, if a man emerged as president, governor and chairman of local governments, a women should be the vice. “Nigerian women must close ranks, units, build synergy and work together to present a common front to future political engagements if they must make political progress,” she said.

 She however urged Nigerian Women to henceforth vote en bloc for political party structure, nomination for election and appointments. She also called on the National Assembly to stop giving the impression that they are against the progress of Nigerian women and should therefore pass all relevant legislations relating to the female agenda before them. While INEC on their part should review extant rules and regulations and make them friendlier towards encouraging female participation in the political process.
