Women’s Education Tops  Priority If My Husband Is Elected Governor -Hauwa Wali



Hajiya Hauwwa Wali ,Wife of Kano PDP Gubernatorial candidate

The wife of the Kano PDP gubernatorial candidate, Hajiya Hauwa Sadiq Wali says she will  equip women in the state with knowledge which she describes as a ladder  to any meaningful development.

She stated that, through education, women who form a large part of the society will be led to self-realization thereby exposing them to lots of opportunities and achieving greatly where they couldn’t hitherto.

In an interview last  with journalists in Kano, Hauwa says her husband Sadiq Wali is a beacon of hope who has great plans of returning Kano to the path of human and infrastructural development as well as reviving the integrity of the state and economy.

According to Hausa Wali, her husband’s administration if given the mandate has devised  strategies to develop the state with focus on key sectors such as education, health, commerce and empowerment, which have direct impact on the lives of the people especially  rural dwellers.

There are so many Factors why I believe Sadiq Wali is the best candidate. Aside the fact that he is one of the youngest contestant, if you look at his background you will see that he has lots of exposure which I believe is a plus for anyone who is seeking to be in the position he is vying for”.

“Look at his manifesto, you will realize that Sadiq is trying to fix Kano, he is trying to make Kano the beacon of the north. We all know that we have lost a lot of integrity especially in terms of leadership. I believe he is the kind of person that can restore the state’s integrity in the peoples’ eyes nation-wide”.

He has good intention towards education, health, commerce and so many other aspects of work”

In my position as a woman, what I intend to do if given the opportunity Insha Allah is first of all, how to make women’s live easier towards their health, education and  empowerment. These are the three areas I believe every woman must be given the opportunity to explore in order to better their lives”.

“Due to lack of education, a lot of women don’t even know what their entitlements are not just in the society but even in their marriages. So, I believe education is the first step in the right direction. Whatever you are doing in life, if you are not educated, it hinders your opportunities”, she added.

The kano PDP guber candidate’s wife who spoke with enthusiasm on women’s health said, government must move beyond providing just empty infrastructures in the health sector, but equip them with everything necessary to save lives and leading to decline of mortality rate indices amongst women and infants in the state.

“Any society that fails to provide qualitative healthcare services for its people, especially the women and children who are more vulnerable is a sick society whose dream of achieving greatness is still far from reality”.

“Our administration will accord the women relevance by ensuring that their basic needs are well taken care of and given opportunities to also contribute to the growth of the state”.

Furthermore, Hauwa Sadiq Wali added that their empowerment scheme for the women and youth will be designed in such a way that beneficiaries will not only be given start-up funds, machines or equipment, but first of all empowered with modern knowledge and skills on how to run that particular business in line with what is obtainable at the moment. That way, beneficiaries of such empowerment programs will be able to turn their start-up capital into profits, she said.

Hauwa charges the electorates and the general people of the state to rally round her husband Sadiq Wali in the Saturday, March 18 election for a new era of prosperity, transformation and overall development in Kano.

Dr.Y.Z Ya’u Elected as Convener of Nigerian Civil Society Situation Room



Dr YZ Yau

In a highly contested election held at the Abuja Continental Hotel, Dr. Y.Z Ya’u, the Executive Director of the Centre for Information Technology and Development (CITAD), has emerged as the new Convener of the Nigerian Civil Society Situation Room.

The announcement was made in a statement released to the press by Ali Sabo, CITAD’s Digital Rights Officer.

The Nigerian Civil Society Situation Room is a coalition of more than 70 civil society organizations dedicated to monitoring Nigeria’s electoral process and elections across the nation.

Established in 2010 before the 2011 general elections, the Situation Room undertakes regular analysis and disseminates information on significant developments and events related to electoral conduct in Nigeria.

With a primary focus on improving the quality of Nigeria’s electoral system, the Situation Room aims to enhance the capacity of civil society organizations to engage and monitor the electoral process effectively. It supports coordination and synergy among various election stakeholders, promoting collaboration, proactive advocacy, and prompt action in response to incidents during elections.

The Situation Room’s secretariat is hosted by the Policy and Legal Advocacy Centre (PLAC), a civil society organization founded by Clement Nwankwo. It serves as a platform for advanced planning, scenario building, evidence-based analysis, constructive engagement with stakeholders, and election observation.

During elections, the Situation Room sets up a physical Election Situation Room comprising an Analysts’ Room and a Technical Room. The Analysts’ Room consists of experts in democracy and governance issues, while the Technical Room houses a Call Centre and a Social Media desk. Field observers deployed nationwide for general elections and off-cycle governorship elections send reports to the Communication Room, where they are verified and published on the Situation Room’s social media platforms.

Incidents reported by field observers are escalated to relevant election stakeholders, such as the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and security agencies, for prompt resolution. The Situation Room issues statements based on these reports, drawing attention to issues such as logistics challenges, security concerns, voter intimidation, and inducement. It calls upon the appropriate authorities to take immediate action in curbing such challenges.

One of the areas of particular focus for the Situation Room is the collation and transmission of election data, which it often identifies as the “weak link” in the Nigerian electoral system. By closely monitoring this stage of the electoral process, the Situation Room aims to ensure transparency and credibility in the declaration of winners.

With Dr. Y.Z Ya’u as its new Convener, the Nigerian Civil Society Situation Room is poised to strengthen its efforts in promoting free, fair, and transparent elections in Nigeria, thereby contributing to the growth and consolidation of democracy in the nation.
