Mr Ganduje made the pledge on Monday evening at an interactive session with journalists as part of activities to mark the Nation’s Democracy Day.

He noted that the ruling party in the state, APC, had previously supported women with political ambition.

He said, ”Although the party made it open and free for female contestants to obtain registration forms for various positions, they had ceased (sic) the opportunity.”
