The wife of the President, Mrs Aisha Buhari, on Wednesday stressed the need for more women to show interest and participate in partisan politics. Buhari made this assertion at a 2-day Nigeria Women Political Stakeholders Summit in Abuja with the theme: “Increasing the Participation of Women in Governance process in Nigeria,” organised by the National Council of Women Societies (NCWS).

The wife of the president noted that the decline in participation of women in governance has led to poor national development in the country. According to her, in spite of the good intention of this administration to actively engage women in governance, there has been an alarming decline of women participation. Mrs Buhari, who was re‎presented by the former deputy governor of Plateau State, Dame Tallen, lamented the alarming decline in the statistics of women participation in governance, saying it would not augur well for national development.

“Since 1999 there has been an alarming decline in the statistics of women in governance, something has gone terribly wrong, and we women need to speak out and do something about it. We make up 50 per cent of this country’s population and we cannot continue to be sidelined in the decision making process of this country,” she said.
