Ahead of Nigeria’s presidential election slated for February 16, 2019, wife of former Vice President and Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mrs Aminat Titi Abubakar, has enjoined the people of Kwara State, especially women  and youth to vote massively for her husband.

Mrs. Abubakar spoke Tuesday in Ilorin while addressing a mammoth crowd of women and youth at Kwara Hotel.

She advised women and youths in the state to put an end to the government of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the country because the party had failed the nation.

Mrs Abubakar, who lamented the incompetence of President Muhammadu Buhari and the sorry state of the nation’s economy which she noted has greatly affected the lives of Nigerians urged all Nigerians, particularly women and youths to salvage their destinies by voting out the APC.

She reiterated the good plans and commitment of her husband towards developing and making Nigeria work again.

Mrs. Abubakar also pointed out that if elected, her husband would restructure the country to allow for healthy competition among the states so that they can be self sufficient.

Earlier in her address, wife of the Senate president, Barrister Toyin Saraki implored the people of the state to roundly reject APC in the forthcoming election.

Also speaking wife of Peter Obi, Mrs. Margaret Obi thanked the state for availing the country the services of Dr. Bukola Saraki as the Senate president. She explained that he has done the country proud and urged people of the state to vote for the PDP in the coming elections.

In her welcome address, First Lady of the state, Deaconess Omolewa Ahmed stressed the importance of women and youths in the country. She explained that women are pivotal to any election and therefore must not be forgotten in the scheme of things.

Earlier the convoy of Mrs Abubakar had paid homage to the Emir of Ilorin, Dr. Ibrahim Sulu Gambari who used the opportunity to charge politicians in the country on political tolerance and to play the game according to its rules rather than see it as a do-or-die affair.
