You Have Abandoned Us – APC State Women Leaders Slam Party’s National Leadership

The state women leaders of the Forum of All Progressives Congress, APC, complained on Tuesday that the party’s national leadership had abandoned them.

Patricia Yakubu, the Forum’s president, lodged the complaint on Tuesday in Abuja while paying Dr. Abdullah Ganduje, the party’s national chairman, a courtesy call.

Yakubu, along with 35 other APC state women leaders, vehemently declared that they had been excluded from the party’s plans by Mary Alele-Idile, the National Woman Leader.

She stated: “The State Women Leaders will want to advocate that we should be carried along in all the affairs pertaining to women in the states. We are closer to the party women at the grassroots, the largest voting bloc in the secular world. Our demography should not be neglected.
