There’s Nothing Preventing Women From Becoming President In Nigeria - Obasanjo

Obasanjo spoke at the 5th edition of the Egba Dialect Debate and  Choral Competition for Secondary Schools in Ogun Central Senatorial District in Abeokuta.

The event was organized by the Pro-Chancellor of the University of Lagos, Dr. Lanre Tejuoso, which featured a debate session with the theme “Nigeria is ripe for a female President”

Speaking at the event, Obasanjo expressed his support for the motion, emphasizing the need to provide women with the opportunity to lead the country.

He highlighted the importance of gender equality in leadership roles and encouraged the nation to recognize the diverse perspectives and strengths that women can bring to governance.

Obasanjo said, “From my own view, if we want the country to grow, we should consider both genders, because a hand can’t carry a load to the head alone.

“You can do it as you want, but it should be done as it is supposed to be. We can gain experience from both genders. What’s the difference between the genders? Only the female can get pregnant for nine months and a male can’t. That’s the only difference between us.

“As for me, there’s nothing preventing the female gender from becoming the President of our country.”

KanyiDaily recalls that Olusegun Obasanjo had expressed hope that God will not run out of patience with Nigeria because he has allowed its citizens to get away with “stupid things.”
