Ahead of the 2023 general elections, the Minister for Women's Affairs, Pauline Tallen has urged Nigerians to vote for female candidates in the elections to enhance women’s political participation.

She made this known on the sidelines of the 77th session of the UN General Assembly.

“I want to say it louder and clear that women should focus more on supporting women in all the elections; women have been badly ignored. They have not been given their rightful place by all the political parties,” the minister stated. “I, therefore, call on women to ensure that for any woman that has been able to secure a ticket, we should all go out to support her.”

Ms Tallen added, “She (Aishatu Binani) is the only candidate I’m calling with a loud voice to mobilise support for and other women vying for various positions.”

She noted that women need to make history by voting for Aishatu Binani, the only female gubernatorial candidate from Adamawa, Aishatu Binani.

Ms Binani became the first female governorship aspirant to win a primary election to represent a major political party (APC) in the forthcoming general elections.

Ms Tallen said women should rally support for Ms Binani to ensure she wins. The minister said has done well, and women need to push through their votes for Nigeria to produce the first elected female governor, according to Peoples Gazette.

She added that women had a key role to play in ensuring a peaceful election and contributing to the country’s growth and development through their leadership skills.

“Women are peacemakers, and you know that every election, the success of every election depends on the participation of women and the youth. Women don’t just go with adult children. We ensure that our youth fully participate,” the minister explained.
