Dr. Toyin Akanle has called on women, especially widows, to resist the temptation to sell their votes in the 2023 general elections.
Dr. Akanle made the call in Isanlu during the 19th edition of the annual widow’s empowerment programme in honour of his late mother.
He counseled widows to see their votes as a potent power to vote leaders that would carter for their wellbeing.
The frontline politician urged them to continue to have faith in God and avoid acts that are inimical to their spiritual, societal growth and development.
He empowered over 250 widows through his non governmental organization, Williams James Foundation to celebrate the yuletide season.
He added that the 20th anniversary of the widows empowerment will hold in April 2023.
Dr. Akanle also organized a carol service for about 300 children including orphans.

Dr. Akanle, while addressing the different gatherings, felicitated with children and widows on the celebration, saying the events where organized to put smile on the faces of widows and bring children together to celebrate the birthday of Christ.
