It Is A Shame On Nigeria That Only 3 Women Made It To The 10th Senate - Ireti Kingibe

The newly elected senator representing Abuja under the platform of the Labour Party, Ireti Kingibe, has expressed her gratitude to Nigerians for electing her to represent Abuja in the 10th National Assembly.

However, Ireti Kingibe expressed her displeasure over the abysmal representation of women in the Senate. She stated that it is a shame on the entire country that just three women made it to the Senate.

Speaking further, Ireti Kingibe noted that it is not as if women are not coming out to be elected into elective positions, however, along the way, the women are gradually taken out of the equation.

Ireti Kingibe disclosed that during her journey towards becoming a Senator, she won free and fair, but a lot of efforts were made to push her aside and put back the person the people rejected.

Ireti Kingibe said that Nigeria needs to examine itself and look at where the country is coming from and where it hopes to get to in the future especially when it comes to female representation in politics.
