“Ladies have been made the endangered species due to their gender. Nothing is left to their profit, starting from the households, politics, church buildings, economic system and what have you ever. Check out the simply concluded Imo state home of meeting election, no lady was elected of the 27 members of the meeting. The three senatorial seats in Imo state have been gained by males.
Ladies ought to be given an opportunity to contribute to the nation’s political progress. In actual fact, they need to be on the decision-making desk of the nation. Sufficient is sufficient! Sufficient of this boys brigade lineup in Nigeria’s political panorama. It’s killing our nation. We must always not proceed undermine the powers of ladies in effecting nice adjustments.
Go and verify any establishment that’s manned by a lady; there should a distinction. Proof of ladies driving this nation to a larger top abound.

These are nice girls of substance who’ve the wherewithal to impact change.
We demand that the deputy governorship slots of all of the 36 states in Nigeria be solely reserved for girls in order that they’ll even have a voice like the boys.”
