A women support group within the ruling party,  APC Professional Women Council has called on women to brace up for the challenges ahead of the 2023 General Elections.

The National Director Women Affairs, APC Professionals Mrs Ronke Soyombo also emphasized the need to carry women along as the 2023 poll draws near.

Soyombo made the call during a virtual meeting of the Council held on Tuesday.

According to her, no woman should be condemned regardless of class differentiation, positions or educational background.

She further urged women to visit schools, offices, markets, parks and garages to sensitize all and sundry,  and mobilize support especially for women contesting elective positions.

Speaking, the Director-General, APC Professional Council, Seyi Bamigbade, urged women to move out en masse and leave no stone unturned in achieving great roles for the benefit of members of the Council, the party and the country at large.

In her address, a representative of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Mrs Tadese educated women on the solutions to Frequently Asked Questions relating to PVC registration, change of residence, designated polling units, PVC recovery and PVC revalidation processes, among others.

She disclosed that the PVCs do not expire contrary to the public opinion, noting "PVCs are permanent hence the name, Permanent Voters' Card".

Meanwhile, APWC which cuts across the six geo-political zones has inaugurated Planning and Strategy, Mobilisation, Finance and Fund Raising, and Media and Publicity committees headed by notable women in politics.

This, according to Soyombo, is to ensure active participation of women towards bringing political stability within the polity.
