A female presidential aspirant, Elishama Ideh, has urged women to participate actively in the 2019 general elections by contesting for elective offices.
Ideh, who is an aspirant on the platform of the Alliance for New Nigeria (ANN), gave the advice in an interview with NAN in Epe, Lagos State, on Wednesday.
Ideh said that women had been shortchanged over the years from occupying some key positions in governance.
She said that women should contest for elective offices of their choice, to exhibit their potential.
“Public officers should give women the opportunity to actively participate in governance.
“We must be given equal opportunities to participate and play our roles as public officers.
“It is against this backdrop that I am seeking to join the race for the number one office in the nation,’’ she said. esident.
