Even with the affirmative action of 35% representation of women in political and non elective positions in Nigeria, the number of women in the legislative houses is not encouraging as a result of the patriarchal dominance of the men in Nigeria.
In the elective positions in Nigeria since 1999, it is evident that women have not reached 10% representation. From 1999 till date, no woman has been vice president of Nigeria and not to talk about president. How could they survive the primaries when men always steal the show despite the large number of women that attended the primary election but refused to vote for them even on sympathy bases. But we have witnessed paradigm shift in women participation in politics recently with the emergence of Senator Uche Ekwunife, the great Iyom as well as Hon Linda Ikpeazu a lady who has distinguished herself greatly in the National Assembly. It will interest to know that these wonderful women are not only from Igbo land but Anambra.
I can see history being made in Nigeria’s politics with of them being the first female President of Nigeria. APC National Youth Caucus Anambra State will give them all the support they need in grassroot mobilization when the need arises.
