Women in Politics

In the last general election in Nigeria which was concluded in April 2011, alot of women in the Nigeria National Assemly could not make it back due to intrigues by the political big wigs in their constituencies, hence women activist is left with new campaign on the inclusion of women in decision making.
However the President, Goodluck Jonathan promised to give women 35% opportunity in his government. So far he has tried living up with his promise on inclusion of women to an extent but am waiting for the mainstreaming of gender in his policies, i hope it will be done.
