ABUJA, (CAJ News) – NIGERIAN Ramatu Tijjani has been elected first female president of the Conference of African Political Parties (CAAP).

She assured Nigerians not to let them down in the discharge of her new duties.
Tijjani thanked Nierian President Muhammadu Buhari for his continued support for women, youths, gender inclusiveness and war against
corruption, terrorism and eradication of poverty not only in Nigeria but the entire African continent.
“This victory is very timely and commemorates the good health and arrival of Mr. President from London,” she said.
