Abuja - The Kogi East Senatorial District aspirant, Halima Alfa, has called on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leadership to save female politicians in the state from being marginalised.
She made the call on Thursday in Abuja while speaking with the media.
She also called on President Goodluck Jonathan to intervene in the political situation in the state which she said was being taken over by political godfathers.
According to her, political godfathers are in the habit of imposing their choice candidates on the people, claiming that they are anointed by the presidency.
“I am calling on President Jonathan to know that they have been using his name to impose people that cannot deliver on us,” she said.

She stressed that though the PDP national leadership was doing everything to move the party forward, it was facing great challenges in Kogi.
Alfa, therefore, advised that there was a need for the party`s leadership to always bring forth its first 11 for every election.
“We must present popular and credible people to ensure we win all elections, not godfather-imposed people.”
She, however, called on the PDP national leadership to return her as the winner of the recent House of Representatives primaries in the state or conduct a fresh exercise in the district.
This, she said, should be done under a more trusted representative from the party`s national headquarters.
