Senate President Saraki Says He Wants More Women To Hold Political Office (Photos)

President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki has said he wants more women to hold political office in Nigeria.

The senate president said this while receiving a group of women yesterday at the national assembly.

Below are some of the things he said;

One of the key issues that deals with increased female participation in politics is the Gender and Equal Opportunities Bill (#GEOBill).

I know that many people believe that this bill could have been passed faster, however, it will be the final result that matters. This is because, in lawmaking, sometimes, you might begin with 10 or 15 requests in a Bill; but it doesn’t end there.

Hence, what we will continue to do is to lead by example and encourage others to continue to do the same. — Senate President, Bukola Saraki.
