The United Nations (UN) has ranked Nigeria lowest in the sub-Saharan Africa and the world in the area of allowing or allocation of elective and leadership positions to Nigerian women in the country.

The international organization, therefore, demanded that not less than 50 per cent representation of women in the elective positions in the 2023 general elections.

Angela Muruli, the Programme Analyst of UN Women, disclosed this in Abuja on Tuesday during an interview with journalists at the training programme, experience sharing and inauguration of the Network of Young Women in Politics.

Muruli said it was important for women in Nigeria to be involved in politics because when women are involved in leadership, they make decisions that benefit the whole society as the society is not just men.

The UN official said, “For starters, Nigeria has almost the lowest representation for women in sub-Sahara Africa and in fact in the world. So, for the giant of Africa, it is quite worrying that half of the population are not ably represented.”
