The Labor Party’s 2023 presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has said that experience has shown that Nigerian women are more productive than women.
Responding to questions about how he will ensure that women’s participation in government is proportional to their votes, Obi said it is important that people return to his background as a leader.
The former Governor of Anambra State confirmed that during his tenure in the state, women held key government positions.
He also mentioned that for this reason he was tempted to create a ministry for men’s affairs to address the deficit faced by the male gender in government.

“I said they took over and as I said women are more productive in Nigeria than men are in Nigeria.”
In addition, the former governor noted that he worked with the best crop of women while in government and in the banking industry.
“I worked with them when I was in the banking industry, they saved the bank. When they believe in something, they do it. How I wish our men would do the same. And be less corrupt.”
