Nigeria Will Not Have A Female President Anytime Soon – Bisi Fayemi

The wife of Ekiti State Governor, Erelu Bisi Fayemi has come out to say that Nigerian women shouldn’t misconstrue feminism.

She recently revealed this via a statement, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to her, feminism should not be a reason for women to fight blindly because ladies need to keep valuing dignity, self-respect while walking on the path of truthfulness.

She added that women should also rule out the possibility of female president for Nigeria for now because of the current hostile political system.

Her words, “Nigeria is ripe for a female presidency, but we won’t have one anytime soon, because those who are controlling power and in leadership positions have a way of keeping female gender away from power.”

“Despite this treatment, we are proud that we have women like Okonjo Iweala, who is the Director General of the World Trade Organisation, and others who are faces of respect to women.”

“So, technically, we are ready for it. We have the people with exposure and education, but we have to build a system that will allow them realise their full potentials within the political space.”

“Women should have rights, should not be battered, should have education, should be economically self-dependent and it is important for them to be protected.”

“We must confront those issues that tend to undermine women. Women are entitled to live decent lives and that is why the government of Governor Kayode Fayemi is displaying that political will to support us to defend female gender against abuses.”

“In my own understanding of feminism, I can defend women who were being battered by their husbands, women who are well mannered, but I can’t defend those who are ill-mannered and rude.”

“What I am fighting for is for them to achieve their full potentials.”

“I decided to be a feminist and defender of human rights because I was lucky to have married to someone who is a governor and has executive powers.”

“We believe that we can use the political will and instrument of democracy to change our perspective about some things concerning women emancipation.”
