Obaseki tasks women on political participation


By Sunday AniEdo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has urged Nigerian women to participate actively in the political process as that is the only way their concerns will be addressed.He made the call in Lagos at a security a conference, ‘Women in Security (WIS)’ put together by a body of professional security experts, the ASIS International.The governor, who was special guest of honour at the event, encouraged women to stop lamenting about their exclusion in governance, but rather get actively involved in election processes by placing their issues on the table for debate by the candidates.He said the major challenge of governance in Nigeria today was leadership, which excluded young people and women from politics.He also tasked women on the need to get registered to be able to take part in 2023 elections.“You can’t complain after it’s all done if you were not part of telling what you need and how it should be done,” he said.Obaseki charged the women to participate not just by attending campaigns and rallies, but by making sure that their issues were on the table for debate.“They should ensure that issues on how the economic policies affect women and families, and how the political process guarantees their rights and freedom are tabled for debate.”
