Aisha Binani, the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in Adamawa, says she will win the election if all women in the state vote for her.
Binani spoke on Saturday, shortly after casting her vote at PU 005, Bamboi ward, Yola south LGA.
“This is not the first time that we have conducted an election, we just concluded the presidential and national assembly, and they were peaceful and credible elections,” Binani said.
It’s a men’s world, but I feel great (participating in an election dominated by men). This time around, the men are also giving us much support that is expected from them.
“Women virtually constitute the larger population of voters – if all the women cast their vote in my favour, certainly we will get there.”
Binani, senator representing Adamawa central, is one of the 11 female governorship candidates in northern Nigeria contesting the election.
She is seeking to unseat Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri, the incumbent governor and candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
