I need to use this medium on this occasion of celebrating your victory at the poll to seek your express approval, for a 40% allocation of positions reserved for women in your next cabinet as a reward for the unalloyed support and massive votes contributed to your victory by women in the state.
“We women promise to keep supporting you, and to stand solidly behind your administration, as we hope and believe you will continue to carry us along and increase our participation in government activities and programmes.
This would ensure that you succeed even much more than you did in the first term.
“Once more I join the rest of the womenfolk in the state to congratulate you and Her Excellency, Mrs. Betty Anyanwu-Akeredolu on this well deserved victory at the poll.
“The women of this state have resolved to continue to give their support and loyalty to the government and the good works of our mother, the first lady, Mrs. Anyanwu- Akeredolu.
This includes groups such as BRECAN, Bemore and FOWOSO who all pray for more success and women impactful programmes in the next four years”.
