    The National Centre for Women Development (NCWD) in pursuit of its mandate to undertake activities geared towards the social, economic and political empowerment of women within the overall framework of national development, entered into collaborations with the UN Women to initiate a programme titled ‘Advance: Women’s Political Participation in Nigeria’ with support from the Canadian Government.
