The Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate, Peter Obi says he has observed that women are more productive in Nigeria and less corrupt than their male counterparts.
Obi, a former governor of Anambra State, made this claim on Sunday during The Peoples Townhall, organised by Channels Television and its partners.
He pledged to bring more women into government if elected president in the forthcoming general elections.
“I can say it without anything; women are more productive in Nigeria than men any day, any time. I worked with them when I was in the banking industry; they saved the bank.
“I wish our men would do the same thing. And they (women) are less corrupt; they are easily satisfied with little. Men will just go on and on, forgetting that it is public money they are taking,” Obi said.
Obi added that he gave women good representation in government while he was the governor of Anambra State, mentioning key positions women held in his government, such as the Accountant General, Chief of Staff, commissioner for finance, and the Permanent Secretary of Government House.
