The Confluence Women Mandate, CWM, has appealed to civil servants in Kogi State to maximize the opportunity offered by this Saturday’s election to free themselves from the clutches of poverty as fashioned by the PDP.
The group, therefore, urged workers in the state to troop out en-mass and vote for the APC candidate, Prince Abubakar Audu, arguing that terminating PDP rule is the only panacea to the deluge of problems confronting the state.
Coordinator of CWM, Hajia Asabe Nuhu, who spoke in an interview in Abuja yesterday, said that the suffering workers can make a choice between remaining in perpetual poverty or liberating themselves.
Nuhu, who was visibly angry at the plight of the workers and the general situation in the state, said apart from workers’ dilemma “as mothers, we are saddened with the precarious future of our children who are roaming the streets without jobs in the state.”
Hajia Nuhu argued that Audu has done it before, adding, “we are convinced that he is ready to do much more, especially in the area of creating employment opportunities for our children. We are tired of watching them idling away.”
“If during his last tenure, the administration initiated the multi-trillion naira Obajana Cement Factory with the Dangote groups, we are confident that Audu’s coming back will foster establishment of cluster of industries within the three Senatorial districts,” she said.
