Meanwhile, the Peoples Democratic Party has asked women to be ready to pay for nomination forms instead of waiting to be asked to pick them free by political parties.

According to the party, this would enhance their participation, and also earns them respect in politics.

Legit.ng gathered that the Chairman, National Caretaker Committee of the party, Ahmed Makarfi, stated this when he received the Minister of Women Affairs and Social Development, Senator Jummai Alhassan, at the PDP headquarters in Abuja on Monday July 17.

Makarfi said the PDP would support the enactment of a law in support of the gender parity in politics and participation in governance.

In the video below, former president, Goodluck Jonathan, said that the PDP must work towards strengthening itself because Nigerians still have faith in the party.
