Abuja - The National Woman Leader of People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Kema Chikwe, has announced she would not contest for any position in the forthcoming National Convention set for Port Harcourt on May 21.

“I am quitting the stage for younger women to come into politics and take up positions at the party level and you all know that with my wealth of experience over the years, I have set an acceptable standard for others to follow,” Chikwe said.

She thanked the party and Nigeria for giving her the opportunity to serve.

“I believe that people can always serve at different levels, even privately; I believe that other women can serve as well, so I will give them the opportunity,” Chikwe added.

She has held different offices since the inception of the 4th Republic in

1999 before her election in 2012 as the National Woman Leader on the platform of the PDP.
