President of Women Mentoring and Leadership Initiative (WOMFOI), Mrs Florence Aya has said that no fewer than 32 women have indicated interest in elective positions across the 23 local government areas of Kaduna State in the May 12 local government poll.

Aya said the women are seeking councillorship and chairmanship positions in the election.

She also said some woman had indicated interest to occupy the chairmanship position of the ruling All Progressives Congress in the state.

Aya further said that dozens of women aspirants had begun to show interest in the House of Assembly as well as the National Assembly seats in the 2019 general elections.

She described the development as “good omen,” saying that the number of women interested in elective office in the state is on the increase due largely to the leadership mentoring of women by WOMFOI.
