Buni admonished women to spread the message of peaceful elections.
“You should enlighten your spouses, children, brothers, in-laws, neighbours and the larger society that, we must not see election as a do or die affair. We should promote peaceful elections and service delivery against personal gains.
“Let me once again assure you that APC will continue to support you, and to support you generously” he assured.
