Abike Dabiri-Erewa, a former senator and chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, has voiced concern with the APC’s South-West elders summit’s exclusion of women (APC).
“Hmmm! Elders/leaders of the APC South-West meet. Not a single female! “There is God ooo.. from the entire South-West,” Ms Abike Dabiri-Erewa tweeted.
On Friday, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, former Lagos governor Bola Tinubu, and other APC officials co-hosted a meeting of elders’ with Bisi Akande, the party’s founding chairman, and Olusegun Osoba, the former governor of Ogun State.
The APC-led presidency’s systemic disrespect for women in politics is exemplified by the absence of women from the leaders’ meeting.
The presidency has continued to ignore the National Gender Policy, which stipulates that women should be appointed to 35% of political positions.
Only seven of Nigeria’s thirty-six ministers are female, and only four of the Federal Character Commission’s thirty-seven members are female.
