The First Lady put women?s voting power at center stage in support of the re-election bid of President Jonathan.

?The President has done a lot to tackle the developmental needs of the nation, in spite of the challenges and opposition against his administration,? the wife of the president said.

?Let us take advantage of our numerical strength to vote for the re-election of the President, because more Nigerian women had been appointed to political offices by Jonathan?s administration than past administrations.

?Nigerian women should no longer go back to the kitchen. It is not our portion to go back to the kitchen. We have women that are capable. We can contribute our quota to the development of Nigeria.

?We women are suffering but God will see us through,? she said, adding that the President had helped to alleviate the plight of Nigerian women.

She urged Nigerian women not to vote for any politician who would not carry the womenfolk along in his administration, noting that, her husband, President Goodluck Jonathan has carried women along in his government.
