MINISTER of Women Affairs and Social Development, Zanaib Maina and wife of Ekiti State governor, Bisi Fayemi, have identified lack of access to funds and fear of seeming male dominance for the fewer percentage of women in elective positions in the country.
This was their opinion during a visit to the minister by the executive and advisory board members of the Nigerian Women’s Trust Fund, in Abuja.
The two women leaders, therefore, advised technocrats and qualified women to venture into politics, which they said, was the only way they could compete favourably with male politicians and win elections.
Fayemi’s wife led the delegation to the minister’s office in her capacity as the chairperson of the advisory board of the fund.
The governor’s wife, however, solicited financial and political support from the ministry to enhance the political fortunes of female politicians aspiring to elective offices across the country.
