The Women's affairs ministry recently submitted an extremely lean budget that I consider sad and unacceptable.
Nigerian women constitute more than 70% of the total population and the voting number consists more than 60% of this 70%.
According to the World Bank, no nation can hope to develop without mainstreaming women affairs and growth is impossible without ensuring women participate and with the size of its budget, it is near impossible for women's activities to be mainstreamed.
How do you train them or how are they even expected to acquire the requisite skills for nation building?
I am pleading with the gender sensitive leadership of the 9th Senate to look at ways to address this unacceptable issue for women are the bedrock of any society.
