I have taken the decision that women need to take that bold step. I have thus decided after discussion with family members and friends that I’ll go for the leadership of my party the PPP. “I have the determination, I have ability and by the grace of the Almighty I’ll have the necessary support of the people. If she makes good on her decision, it could make her the second woman to publicly express interest in running for president”.
