Nigerian women have been described as champions of democracy as they turned out en mass to cast their votes at the ongoing governorship and state house of assembly elections.

An election observer, Mrs Luise Okeke, said that still basking in the euphoria of the International Women’s Day, more women came out to vote.

She noted that though the voter turnout was low, majority of the people who came out were women.

Mrs. Okeke also pointed out that despite the fact that women participation is low in Nasarawa state, more women still come out to vote.

Similarly, the Nasarawa state commissioner for Land and Survey, Mrs. Jalima Jabiu, commended women in the state for fully participating in the election.

She urged incoming government to reward rje women by appointing them into offices.
