INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY AND THE NIGERIAN SITUATION

2019 International Women’s Day was celebrated globally with Themes #BalanceforBetter and Think Equal, Build Smart, Innovate for Change. Nigeria was no exception as Women from all walks of life used the day to canvass for Affirmative Action, Gender Responsive Governance, Gender Equality, Girl-Child Education and the need for the inclusion of more Women in the Political and Civic Arenas.
Twenty years after the return of democracy in Nigeria, it is absurd that an abysmal number of Women were elected into the 9th National Assembly thus bringing to reality that a number of issues which concerns the agency of Women and the Girl-Child for the next four years may likely be sidelined leading to the underdevelopment of the country as in the words of former First Lady of the United States of America Michelle Obama- ‘’No country can ever truly flourish if it stifles the potential of its women and deprives itself of the contributions of half of its citizens.”
The political and social advancement of Women cannot be achieved if there are no sustainable mechanisms in place to develop the leadership capabilities of the Girl-Child as well as protecting the education of the Girl-Child. Sad to note that Leah Sharibu, a 15 year old Girl kidnapped alongside her classmates at the Government Girls Science and Technical College, Dapchi, Yobe State is yet to be released after spending more than 365 days in the den of her captors, her experience in their hands is better imagined. More worrisome is the fact that political gladiators during the campaign rallies never mentioned her name or the strategies that would be deployed in securing her release.
Women are beginning to take their place in the global sphere by demonstrating that they are capable of providing applaudable leadership as exemplified by Jacinda Arden of New Zealand. In conclusion, all hands must be on the drawing board in effectuating mechanisms which catalyzes a level playing field for all irrespective of sex or socioeconomic status.

    It convinces them you know what you are talking in regards to.

    Sufficient sleep is ensuring pages are structured in a coherent way, amplifying the particular
    topic. It must be a website pages that addresses a definite market. http://www.stanki.by/bitrix/rk.php?goto=http://scr888.group/other-games-download/2494-download-ace333

    WGCCEEO your write up is rich. I hope women are given quotas in their political parties as that is how they can be evenly represented

    I saw this on This-Day Newspaper. WGCCEEO should collaborate with other NGOs to bring up these issues.
