Gender Representation In Nigerian Elected Offices From 1999-2018 by Databod: 4:28pm On Jul 12
Gender representation in the governance of the nation has remained radically bias. From 1999 till 2018, the percentage of women occupying positions of authority has fluctuated between 5% to 10%. The female community still remains vastly unrepresented in both executive and legislative positions.

Statistics show that a woman has never been elected president or vice president in Nigeria. No woman has been elected governor of a state. Also, only five females have been appointed deputy governors in any state within almost a decade.

The infographic below gives more details.

Will Nigeria ever have a female president or governor?

Hmmn.. Quite interesting. I don't think we are having any female president or Governor soon. Quite sad.

Let's give women chance. They might turn this country around. With bits of luck in every department









Like CROATIAn president . She's gorgeous and gave CROATIA that luck to be in the final. Maybe if we elect a gorgeous lady as president our boys might do well in the next World Cup. She might promise sex to any guy who scored and boom! Even our keeper will try scoring even if it's from post to post.





Am just saying though.. . undecided

Let women work to get those positions. They should not expect to get them on a platter. After all there is a great awareness and fight for gender equality. Go to the field and fight for your perceived rights. kiss

We have had 4 male presidents since 1999. Or was Abdusalam also included in this research?

The power of social may likely shake this gender table to favour women after this thread.

Even the female voters won't vote in a female candidate. We don't like ourselves.

You think they can stand this evil heat called Nigeria politics?
You think they can have the mind to order mass genocide and waste lives in the name of religion and ethnic superiority?
You think they can survive EFCC and DSS harassment?
You think they can survive tear gas and police brutality?
You think they can spend billions in renting crowds for rallies?
You think they can sponsor cultists to behead political opponents?

If politics here is all about jumping from one political party to another, taking the best pics for campaign posters and billboards and elections are won by garnering the most likes on social media, then they may stand a chance.

This is Nigeria, poo is all bleeped up and no gender is better.

Women are the greatest influencers. A woman influences her children, influences her spouse, influences her parents, and the society
