It is nearly ten years since the history was made. In 2014, there is no single state in Nigeria where a woman is governor. Nigerian women are still at the periphery of governance. We have women as ministers, first lady, deputy governors and other low key offices. Women needs to rise up. The likes of Ngozi Okonjo Iweala, Prof Dora Akunyili, Dr Oby, Merem and Ezekwesili are powerful names in Nigeria now.
The male dominant often monopolized Nigeria continues to devalue the importance of women in office. As a stupid Nigerian man argued "She was not elected, She was made governor because the ruling governor was impeached. She sold him out. She hijacked her boss. She will never have been made governor via election."
Is that really true that a Nigerian women will never be elected governor of a state in Nigeria? I don't think so. I'm of the opinion that women in Nigeria politics will help empower more women and effect more changes that her male counterpart.
A mother Nigeria will do better than a corrupt father.
