A 63 year old woman, Halimah Yacob has been declared Singapore’s eighth president on Wednesday after a “walkover” election that saw no vote after no other contenders ran for the position.

Yacob, had been the only candidate deemed eligible to stand in the country’s Elections Department, having held a key public position as speaker of parliament for three years.

The other two contenders, Salleh Marican and Farid Khan, were both denied eligibility, having fallen short of a constitutional rule that required any candidate from the private sector to have led a company with shareholder equity of at least 500 million Singapore dollars (372 million dollars).

Following the announcement, Yacob thanked her supporters in a speech, calling it a “a proud moment for Singapore, for multiculturalism and multi-racialism.”

Yacob is Singapore’s first Malay president in 47 years and the first woman to occupy the president’s office.

Prof Remi Sonaiya contested in 2015, how many Nigerian women (including you) voted for her?

Sarah Jibrin in the 2011 PDP primaries could only garner one vote despite the fact that PDP has a "women wing"

Only the Nigerian women can make bold statement by massively supporting themselves.

That is good, there should be minimum working experiance requirements to stand as President. Unlike in Nigeria where only a school certificate is enough
