The All Progressives Congress, APC, Kaduna State campaign council, is hosting a special women summit on Wednesday the 8th of April 2015 in Kaduna.
The summit, which will take place at Arewa House has as its theme, the Role of Women in Elections.
Women from all sections of the Kaduna society, including representatives of professional women groups, women in business, rural women and market women associations will be in attendance.
According to Ruth Alkali, the Director of APC Women Mobilization in the state, two papers will be presented at the summit.
The first paper will be on the Role of Women in Determining the Outcome of an Election and the second one is on the Role Women as Peacemakers and as Stabilizing Force in the aftermath of Elections.
The APC governorship candidate in Kaduna State, Nasir El Rufai, will be the keynote speaker and will also participate in an interactive session with participants at the conference.
This according to Mrs Alkali will ‘’provide an opportunity for Mr. El Rufai to hear directly from women whose role in nation building he considers critical”
Mrs. Alkali said ‘’any society that ignores women is unlikely to make appreciable progress’’.
