The Chairman of Nigeria Deposit Insurance Corporation (NDIC), Ronke Sokefun, has said that Nigeria is ripe for a female presidency.

Citing the example of Kamala Harris, the first female Vice President of the US, who was sworn in last week, Sokefun said female presidency “is inevitable in Nigeria.”

She spoke while fielding questions from journalists, shortly after she was honoured for her contribution in the education sector by the Baptist Boys’ High School, Abeokuta Old Boys Association.

The award was presented to her during the ‘Presidential Endowment Dinner and launching of the N1bn Development Fund’ which was attended by former President Olusegun Obasanjo, the Alake of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Gbadebo and other prominent members of the old boys association.

Sokefun, who was a commissioner in Ogun State, called for more engagement of women in politics and leadership positions.

She expressed optimism that a female will rule Nigeria, the most populous black nation in the world soon.
