The Presidential candidate of Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN), Dr. Obiageli Ezekwesili, has pledged to tackle poverty in Nigeria if elected president next year.

Ezekwesili, who made the pledge when she granted audience to ‘Women in Politics Organisation’ in her campaign office in Abuja, yesterday, said her administration would mainstream gender related issues in relation to the welfare of women and the girl child.


Acknowledging that poverty could not be completely eradicated from the society, Ezekwesili, however, said she would work hard to minimize the trend through inclusive economic growth and job creation for the youth.

Ezekwesili said that being a woman does not pose a challenge for her to win the presidential election, stressing that she was keen on giving dividends of democracy to all Nigerians.
