According to the stakeholders, the policies should have come earlier than now and in a more matured way, saying the ugly development left many Nigerians frustrated beyond normal.
Speaking at the roundtable programme, the National Woman leader of the Builders And Construction Skilled Artisans Nigeria, BACSAAN and immediate past Ondo state President of the NCWS, Pastor Mrs Jumoke Aborode, noted that the programme went a long way to encourage women to participate in the voting process, regardless of the frustration.
She used the medium to advocate more inclusion of Female in the coming new government through political appointment opportunities.
She enjoined Governors to consider the welfare of female Artisans through empowerment opportunities, noting that empowering them would bring development to the society.
Mrs Aborode, therefore, advised female Artisans to troop out enmasse come Saturday to vote their conscience and shun vote buying and selling.
She disclosed that BACSAAN had toured the six geopolitical zones of the federation to sensitise their members on the need to participate in the election.
At the programme, an Election Procedure handbills was presented to the BACSAAN National Woman Leader, by a representative of the National Orientation Agency, as a guide for members of the Association.
