I am still unable to describe the joy I felt when PLAC, a Non-Governmental Organisation, asked me to travel to the ancient city of Benin City to interview Nigeria’s 1st elected female Senator, Senator Franca Afegbua. Though she passed on 12th March 2023, her legacy lives on. The full interview can be read here: https://placbeam.com/2022/04/28/women-in-politics-more-reliable-than-men-says-nigerias-first-elected-female-senator-chief-franca-afegbua/ Indeed, we need more women in governance and this may only be achieved through a legislation.
Can this solve Nigeria’s low women representation in National and State Houses of Assembly?
