The alarming low numbers of Women/Youths/Special Physically Challenged persons in governance must be taken into consideration, and we shall all take it as burden and make sure the number increases.
Hon. Taiwo Oluga disclosed this at the retreat of the 9th Female Senators/Hon. Members of the National Assembly, organized by the House Committee on Women in Parliament, in collaboration with Youth Initiative for Advocacy, Growth & Advancement (YIAGA) Africa, held on Thursday, 5th March, 2020, at Radisson Blue Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos.
In her remarks, the honourable representing Ayedaade/Irewole/Isokan Federal Constituency in the Green Chamber stated that, democracy is government of the people, by the people and for the people, therefore, everybody, including women, youths and even the physically challenged persons, is to partake in the reshaping, resharpening and remoulding of this country by seeing governance as everybody’s business.
The theme of this year’s retreat is: Think Politics and Power Together, which is therefore a basis for generating facts to make decision on declining number of women, youths and special people in needs.
