Tirwun, who disclosed this in an interview with Daily Sun in Bauchi, appealed to President Goodluck Jonathan to urgently find a lasting solution to the sect's insurgency.

She said: 'Such acts, if not urgently checked, can spell disaster to Nigeria as a nation.

'It can consume those that are supposed to be the custodians of national values.''

The PDP women leader attributed the escalation of destruction of lives and property, by the dreaded Islamic sect to decades of lack of good governance.

According to her, the absence of necessary infrastructure across the country was another area that needed urgent attention from the three tiers of government.

On the 35 per cent affirmation of political appointments to women, Asabe expressed concern that Nigerian women were yet to benefit.

She urged President Jonathan to fulfill his promise, adding that the women were waiting for PDP's reaction on political appointments.

On Governor Isa Yuguda of Bauchi State, she said she wants him to finish appointments before she can comment.

'But so far, we are not impressed with only a woman in his cabinet as a commissioner,' she said.

Asabe added: 'We know those women who campaigned with us, we know many who are capable of holding many responsible political appointments and can deliver any time.

'Yuguda recently appointed commissioners; we are waiting to see what he will do in the area of advisers and special assistants

'But time is not much on his side, though history could be, if he plays his cards well enough.'

'But Bauchi women and Nigerian women should no longer be taken for granted.

'We have come a long way in the liberation of Nigeria, since the Aba women protest in 1929 to date we have demonstrated our capability,' she said.
