The Minister of State FCT, Dr Mariya Mahmoud, has called for the election of more women into the National Assembly in the next general elections.

She said this at the 40th-anniversary celebration of NEWS Engineering Limited and the launch of NEWS 40/40 Leadership Development Fellowship in Abuja.

“We need more women in the National Assembly. In the next election cycle, please. We can have Rwanda doing the twinning system; we are the giant of Africa, so Nigeria should lead going forward.

“We also have appointive positions; we need more women to be given presidential appointments. We need our numbers to be more so that we can contribute our quota because anything you give a woman, she multiplies it and makes it better,” she said.

The Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Benjamin Kalu, assured that his colleagues would prioritise bills promoting women’s rights and political inclusion that failed to be passed in the 9th National Assembly.
