Mrs Mirinda Ombugadu, wife of Hon. David Ombugadu, the gubernatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Nasarawa State for the 2023 general elections has donated vehicles to women groups in the State.
The groups who benefited from the gesture includes; Women Wing of Igbo Community Association, Women Wing of Christian Association of Nigeria (WOWICAN), and Federation of Muslim Women’s Association in Nigeria (FOMWAN) with each of them receiving a Galaxy bus.
Speaking at a separate meeting with the groups on Sunday (March 12, 2023) in Lafia, the wife of the PDP candidate said the gesture was aimed at supporting the groups to facilitate their transportation for meetings and operations.
Ombugadu’s wife added that she has decided to reach out to talk to women in support of her husband’s ambition to govern the State.
Mrs Mirinda added that her husband has the vision and good intention to address the problems currently confronting the state.
According to her, “A vote for Ombugadu on March 18 is a vote to send poverty, unemployment, insecurity, hunger and bad governance out of Nasarawa State.
“A vote for my husband is a vote for quality roads, schools, hospitals, employment of the youths and women as well as better future of all the people of the state,” Ombugadu’s wife added.
She further said that her husband had served for two terms as a representative of the people of Akwanga/Nassarawa-Eggon/Wamba Federal Constituency at the House of Representatives from 2011 – 2019 and has proven himself.
“He will replicate the good things he did before in the House of Representatives and improve on them for the betterment of the entire State.
“Whatever my husband wants to achieve, he will first of all consult God and will never rest until he accomplishes it, so he will not fail as a governor if elected,” she added.
She therefore promised to help her husband deliver better life for the people of the State and appealed that the electorates should vote for him on March 18.
Responding separately, Mrs Uju Ezeora and Mrs Hauwa Joshua, Chairlady Women Wing of Igbo Community Association and Chairperson of WOWICAN respectively, expressed gratitude for the gesture.
The duo promised to mobilise thier members on Saturday, March 18 to go and vote for candidates of thier choice.
They therefore appealed to electorates to vote and protect thier votes and not fight so that the process would be peacefully.
