UN Express Concern For Poor Representation Of Women In Nigeria Politics, Demand 50% Representation.



The United Nation has expressed concern for the poor representation of women in politics in Nigeria. Angela Murili the Programme Analyst of the UN Women stated this in an interview with journalist at the training program and the inauguration of the Network of Young Women in Politics in Abuja on Tuesday.

She said;

For starters, Nigeria has almost the lowest representation for women in sub-Sahara Africa and in fact in the world.

“So for the giant of Africa, it is quite worrying that half the population are notably represented by people who look like them in spaces of power.”

She continued that, “There is no necessary number for best practice but we live in a world where 50 percent or even maybe slightly more women are. So what we will like to see globally are societies where women have equal participation, so that is 50-50.”

The President, WIPF, Ebere Ifendu, said the programme would be sustained towards the 2023 general election
