Ahead of 2023 general elections, the NEC in session advocated for more women participation and engagement into key positions in the country.

The NEC in session encouraged those eligible to vote, to get themselves registered, to enable them exercise their civic responsibility.

It equally expressed concern over the high cost of living in the country and appealed to the Federal Government to implement measures for price control, as well as regulate the operations of orphanages nationwide to guard against trafficking of persons to barest minimum.

The NEC emphasised the need to prioritise youth empowerment and sensitisation at various levels to stop the menace.

The meeting was presided over by the National President of NAWOJ, Comrade Ladi Bala, while the wife of Katsina State Governor, Hajiya Hadiza Bello Masari declared the Meeting open.
