DIRECTOR – General of Forum of Uncommon Women (FUWE) in Edo State, Princess (Mrs.) Philomena Ihenyen has called on women in the state to rally support and vote for Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu in the forthcoming election.

She described him as a credible gentleman who can be trusted to operate a women-friendly government.

Mrs. Philomena Ihenyen, who was a front-runner for the deputy governorship slot in the PDP, made the appeal yesterday while speaking to a coalition of women NGOs who paid her a solidarity visit in her residence.

She stated that the party elders and leaders who opted for a choice other than her person acted wisely in that they felt her time has not come adding that Edo women as mothers, wives, sisters, and daughters, can also be rest assured that an Ize-Iyamu governorship will better their lot.

The leader of the women Mrs. Mariam Jubril said the campaign to have a woman as running mate in the PDP dates back a year, and the coalition settled for Ihenyen because she has all that it takes to represent the interest of women in the state.

Earlier Secretary of FUWE Dr. Tawa Idugboe assured the women that “the journey has just begun, and our labour shall not be in vain.”
