The women forum gave the charge through its leader, Mrs. Agboola Taiwo, at an interactive session with the ADC deputy-governorship candidate during a familiarisation tour of the Obokun Local Government Area of thesState.

They assured Justice Oloyede of their support for her aspiration by promising to mobilize women voters across the area for the party. In a statement issued by Oloyede’s media office, Agboola decried the low participation of women in politics, advising female folk to throw their weight behind the ADC in the forthcoming governorship election.

She therefore advocated for more women participation in politics so as to avoid being marginalised in the decision making process in the state and Nigeria at large. According to the forum, she maintained that women and youths would be responsible for the victory of any political party in the forthcoming guber election, explaining that the forum would work assiduously with the Justice Oloyede to ensure the 35 percent achievement affirmative action for women in the next political dispensation.
