The presidential candidate of Labour Party( LP), Peter Obi, has stated that Nigerian women are more productive and less corrupt than the males.
The ex Anambra governor made this claim on Sunday, January 8, while speaking at The Peoples Townhall, organised by Channels Television.
President of Women in Politics Forum (WIPF), Ebere Ifendu, at the meeting, highlighted that the percentage of women in governance is abysmally low and asked Mr Obi what his plans are about this.
She said: “I want to ask you specifically, what will you be doing to change the status of women in governance.”
Obi while responding to the question revealed all the key positions women held in Anambra State when he was the governor.
He then pledged to bring more women into government if elected president in the forthcoming general elections.
He said: “I can say it without anything; women are more productive in Nigeria than men any day, any time. I worked with them when I was in the banking industry; they saved the bank. ‘
“I wish our men would do the same thing. And they (women) are less corrupt; they are easily satisfied with little.
“Men will just go on and on, forgetting that it is public money they are taking.”
