Nigerian Women Condemn Buhari’s Ministerial List, Write Senate

Over 150 Nigerian women groups, representing different regions, ethnicities, social and political allegiances and organizations for youths and persons with disabilities, have condemned the ministerial list submitted to the Senate.

Their grievance was contained in a letter on Thursday jointly signed by Dr. Abiola Akiyode Afolabi, Executive Director, Women Advocates Research and Documentation Center (WARDC), Ms. Ebere Ifendu, Convener, Women in Politics Forum (WIPF), Dr. Felicia Onibon, Founder, 100 Women Lobby Group and Dr. Nkoyo Toyo, CEO, Gender and Development Action (GADA)

The memo expressed dismay and utter disappointment that 87 percent male dominated the ministerial list.

It read: “This list maintains and reinforces the historical exclusion of women in the country, ignores the youth and people living with disabilities and thus inhibits the critical goal of achieving meaningful, equitable and participatory national development.
