‘Why women still lag behind in politics, governance’
An organisation, Voices for Change (V4C), has said women still lag behind men in politics and governance because they are not prepared for the dynamics of politics.
The deputy team leader of the V4C, Madam Oiza Nicholson, said at a twoday workshop and award ceremony in Kano that women had poor insight into the intrigues of the Nigerian political system.
She said it had become pertinent to address issues relating female to inclusiveness in the electoral process, hence the need for political education for the women to foster further understanding on the workings of politics.
She said under the V4C programme, female politicians were groomed to improve quality of representation in political parties, and that the organisation was also advocating the need to widen the space for women’s political participation in V4C’s four focal states of Enugu, Kaduna, Kano and Lagos as well as the Federal Capital Territory.
