The NCWS national president said that the council had visited some of the political parties to discuss ways to carry women along in the forthcoming elections.

Transition Politics

Lau said that the council held a symposium with the theme: “Transition Politics: The challenges and prospects for Gender Inclusions in Nigeria.


The NCWS national president said the symposium was to further drive home the council’s agenda.

She said that the advocacy visit was part of the council’s ongoing advocacy to seek ways of working together to strengthen the country’s democracy.

Lau urged political parties to adopt the tenets of true democratic principles as a guide to all party’s decisions and actions.

She said: ”Nigerian women had continued to register poor representation in politics and leadership in spite of the huge numerical strength and various national, international legal instruments on gender inclusion and mainstreaming.

”In the history of Nigeria’s democratic rule, women have not attained up to 11 per cent representation in both elective and appointive positions.

“We want to change this narrative and ensure that women’s representation in political and leadership positions will change.

General Elections

”This starts with the 2023 General Elections and political parties have a major role to play in achieving these.

“As a council, we want to collaborate with growth driven institutions, and visionary leadership that share progressive ideals for true democracy, equity and social justice.
