Women groups in Nasarawa State supporting the political ambition of the Labour Party’s Presidential candidate, Peter Obi, have called on residents of the state to eschew all forms of violence in the 2023 general election and vote credible leaders into office.

Speaking in Lafia during a stakeholders’ meeting in preparation for the Labour Party National Women Leader’s visit to the state, spokesperson for the support groups, Cecilia Anzaku, said violence had affected the outcome of previous elections in the country, hence the need to advocate for peaceful elections in 2023.

She further narrated that the women support groups, numbering 22 with about 78,000 members across the 13 Local Government Areas of Nasarawa State, would be receiving the LP’s National Women Leader, Dudu Manuga, before the kick-off of the presidential campaigns on September 28, 2022.

She expressed confidence that Peter Obi and other candidates of the party would emerge victorious in the 2023 general election, saying Nigerians were tired of the All Progressives Congress and the Peoples Democratic Party-led governments at the federal and state levels.
