Opinion: 2 Nigerian women president Buhari can support to become president in 2023

As political parties gear up for the next elections, there have been calls for politicians to give a woman a chance to become president in 2023.

This view was also reiterated today by the Wife of Ekiti State Governor, Bisi Fayemi. 

The First Lady of Ekiti State, said the country is ripe enough to be governed by a female President because of the vast women resources at its disposal.

If more women can come out and demand for a shot at the presidency, there's a chance President Muhammadu Buhari might accede to their request.

In this article, we would be looking at the two most qualified women who can confidently lead Nigeria to greater heights.

First on the list is Amina Jane Mohammed. The politician, who is serving as the fifth Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations is more than qualified for the job having serve as Minister of Environment from 2015 to 2016. Her closeness to the Buhari administration is also an added advantage that could make her get the nomination if the opportunity for a female president arise 

Another name that could easily get the nod is the current Director-General of the World Trade Organization, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala. The Nigerian-American economist is well grounded with domestic politics having previously served as Financs Minister in Nigeria.

If the opportunity comes for a female president in 2023 or 2027, these two women are more than qualified to take Nigeria to the next level.
