Following the declaration of Bola Ahmed Tinubu as president-elect in the 2023 general election by the nation’s electoral body, groups have begun to lobby for appointments in the incoming administration.
LEADERSHIP reports that sequel to his victory in the February 25 presidential poll, the All Progressives Congress (APC) flagbearer in the election, Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu, would be sworn in as president on May 29, 2023, to succeed President Muammadu Buhari who is finishing his second term in office.
The Federation of Muslim Women’s Association in Nigeria (FOMWAN) has enjoined the president-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, to concede 50 percent of political appointments to Nigerian women.
The group also congratulated Tinubu and the vice president-elect, Senator Kashim Shettima on their victory at the presidential election.
The national president of FOMWAN, Hajia Rafiah Sanni, conveyed the group’s message to Tinubu in a statement made available to LEADERSHIP in Ilorin, Kwara State.
