In an apparent deference that campaigns for the 2015 election should be kept in abeyance till further notice, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Thursday kicked off a subtle support for the second term for President Goodluck Jonathan with a planned mobilization of five million women.

This is coming as the wife of the President, Dame Patience Jonathan defended her pet protect, 'the First Ladies Mission', stating it was aimed at improving the status of Nigerian women and provide employment opportunities for Nigerians.

Speaking at the launching of an almanac by the PDP highlighting PDP women in politics, the party's national women leader, Kema Chikwe said: "We are even confident that when President Goodluck Jonathan returns in 2015 women would be talking about 50 percent no longer 35 percent. As we give unequivocal, undiluted, unreserved and unlimited support and as we march with him to 2015, PDP women will reach the Promise Land".
