By Benjamin Arida://
A House of Representatives aspirant on the platform of All Progressives Congress, APC, Hajiya Fatima Binta Muazu, has pledged to develop her constituency in Gusau and Tsafe federal constituency of Zamfara State if elected.
She made the pledge when her campaign team paid royal homage to the Emirs of Gusau and Tsafe.
In his remark, the Emir of Gusau, Alhaji Ibrahim Bello said, ” I am happy for your visit and boldness to aspire for a political office, despite being a Lady.
“I am also happy that your uncle, who is the Mayana Gusau, Alhaji Mamman Makya led you to this palace.
“Indeed women are known to be caring, I therefore pray for you to be successful to empower the people with skills acquisition centres for them to be self reliant, especially women and youths.” he said.
In his remarks, the Emir of Tsafe, Alhaji Muhammad Abubakar Bawa said, “I read political science in the university in overseas, but the theory and practice is different from what it entails in Nigeria and because women are not suported, that is why I didn’t indulge in active politics.
“But this visit has made me happy, for a lady from a reknown family aspiring to represent her people is a welcome development.” he said
Fatima said at the two Palaces of Emirs of Gusau and Tsafe respectively that, “I come to formally inform you and seek for your royal and fatherly blessing as I aspire to be a member, representativing my people in the National Assembly in Abuja.
“My ambition is to contribute my quota in the development of the area.
I am calling on my supporters to abide by the law, avoid confrontation and seek for votes from people based on my laid down manifesto.” she said.
