C'River APC Asst. Women Leader Congratulates Betta Edu

The Cross River State Chapter Assistant Women Leader of All Progressives Congress, Maria Offiong has sent a heartfelt congratulatory message to the newly sworn-in National Women Leader of the Party, Dr Betta Edu.

In her message the grassroots women mobiliser, Maria Offiong said the emergence of Dr Edu is the product of hard work, dedication, loyalty and the Grace of God. 

She expressed the belief that the Edu will be very instrumental to the visibility of women in politics where women will no longer be used as party mobilisers and dancers during campaign rallies but will now be given a place at the table. 

Offiong also used the opportunity to welcome the former commissioner on board, stating that her office will be willing to partner with the office of the national women leader in carrying out several projects and activities for greater women's participation and involvement in politics and leadership.

Speaking with TDN exclusively on phone Offiong said Cross River State women will not rest until the National Assembly revisit the anti-women bills it passed a few weeks back.
