Why Nigerian Women Should Vote Ex-CBN Dep. Gov. As President
It is no longer news that former Deputy governor of CBN, Prof. Kingsley Moghalu, wants President Buhari’s job.
What is news however, is that if he gets elected as president come 2019, 50% of cabinet positions would be occupied by women.
Moghalu made the pledge at a town-hall meeting on Thursday in Lafia, Nasarawa State as part of his consultative tour of Nigeria's 36 states.
He said that women were valuable asset for the development of the country but had been relegated to the background over the years.
He noted that the marginalization of women in the country could only be addressed when women collaborate with men to discuss as partners in progress rather than engage in “battle of sexes.”
The presidential aspirant also promised to embark on Police reform and to restructure the security architecture of the country in order to address the incessant herdsmen/farmers crisis and other security challenges.
He explained that as part of the police reform, more personnel would be recruited in line with international practice.
Moghalu said his government would partner the private sector to build and equip ranches across the country to enable herdsmen maximize profits and curtail crisis with farmers.
Part of his plans also include curtailing brain drain and medical tourism.
“We will bring back these professionals to transform the country’s education sector to world class and stop medical tourism abroad,” he added.
