The All Progressives Congress (APC) is championing the cause for greater involvement of women in politics, according to Mr. Suleiman Argungu, the National Organising Secretary of the party. This call to action came during a courtesy visit by Mrs. Ronke Soyombo, the National Director of the APC Professional Women Council alongside all the coordinators and their deputies.

The APC has recently adopted e-registration to accurately determine the true number of its members nationwide. “Between 2022 and 2023, it was claimed that our party had a certain number of registered members and supporters, which we believe is not accurate compared to the election results,” Argungu stated, highlighting the need for reliable membership data.

The new e-registration initiative aims to provide a clear picture of membership distribution across wards, local governments, and all 36 states. “We want to be certain of what we have on the ground,” Argungu emphasized.

During the visit, Argungu expressed strong support for the APC Professional Women Council and emphasized the need for increased female participation in politics. He urged women to mobilize for the upcoming e-registration, noting the disparity in male and female participation during primary elections. “You must mobilize to achieve a significant presence to ensure victory,” he said, encouraging the council to register a notable number of women.

Mrs. Soyombo reinforced this message, calling for greater involvement of women in the forthcoming governorship elections in Edo and Ondo states. “We seek the inclusion of women in key committees for these elections,” she said, advocating for capable members to serve on critical committees and support women at the grassroots level.

The visit and the discussions underscore the APC’s commitment to gender inclusivity and the active participation of women in Nigeria’s political landscape.
