Group Expresses Shock That Tinubu Will Preside Over Marginalization Of Women

By Ogechi Okorie

A South West women group “Women Leadership Forum”, (WLF), has expressed shock that President-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu will preside over the marginalization of women in this dispensation.

This is coming as the group has condemned the constitution of the leadership table in Nigeria as presently constituted.

Mrs. Funke Ariyo Chairperson of the Forum, made this known in a communique issued after a meeting of the Group on Friday in Abuja.

According to her, the All Progressives Congress, (APC) leadership has reneged on the 35 percent affirmative on gender equality with no woman found in the first six of the country’s leadership table.

“It was outrageous that women in Nigeria are not considered for any of the first six positions in the country.

“We are surprised that a personality like the President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu will preside over the marginalization of women in this dispensation.

“The President-elect, vice President-elect are men.

“The President-elect is right now supporting an all male senate president and deputy.

“He is also supporting an all male speaker and deputy of the House of Representatives and this is absurd to say the least,”Ariyo said.

The group also stated their concern particularly that President-elect Asiwaju Tinubu whose wife, Senator Oluremi, is a distinguished senator of the federal Republic, will allow this marginalization.(NAN)
