“This calls for serious concern about the exclusion of the North-Central women who have shown capacity in various assignments and also delivered for the party in challenging times.
“We need to realize that fairness, equity, and justice within the party by ensuring that women are well positioned in the affairs of the party and also occupy sensitive positions in the decision-making body of the party speak volumes of the ideals, norms, and progressive ethos the party professes as an inclusive one.
“The roles of women in galvanizing support for the party can’t be over-emphasized and should not be at the execution stage only but should be included in the apex decision-making of the party such as the Presidential Campaign Council.
“I implore our national leaders to consider that women’s voices be heard in all formations with their strong involvement for the victory of the party,” she said.
