Speaking on Saturday evening, at the end of a three-day conference with presidential candidates of political parties with the theme: “Good Governance for Better Nigeria,” organised by the Nigerian Women 4 Good Governance in Abuja.
Adewole Adebayo said, most of the problems confronting the nation would have fizzled out if women are empowered.
“A government should be like a ‘Housewife’ who will wake up and think of how people we eat.”
“There is urgency in running woman inclusive government in Nigeria; only through empowering families and women can the majority of Nigeria’s issues be resolved. If you want to empower families, you have to empower women. I’m also an employer of labour. I became an employer of labour when I was 22 years old so I have been employing people over time, before I thought I will be in politics, 80-85 per cent of my managers are women – It is not because they know how to dress elegantly, it’s because they know how to manage and care. The truth of the matter is that Nigerian society and the Nigerian government don’t look alike.” Adewole Adebayo stated
SDP 2023′ presidential candidate, Adewole Adebayo expresses his worries – says in Nigerian society, the women carry the verdict and the women run the show but in the Nigerian government, the men take everything; this has to change, If we can listen to women, we will know the problem of Nigeria and solve them.”
“If am elected i will run woman inclusive government. They have a major role to play because I grew up well taken care off. In fact, my attitude to governance arose from the fact that I grew up in innocence.
“The problems of government did not affect me that much because of the family from which I came.
“And my aim, therefore, is to make sure that however long I stay in power or government, whether long or short, I will empower families. Because failure to empower families is the problem of Nigeria”.
