Former Education Minister Oby Ezekwesili Says Men Are To Blame For Nigeria’s Woes

A former Vice-President of the World Bank and former Minister of Education, Dr. Oby Ezekwesili, has said that male political leaders are to blame for the poor state of affairs in Nigeria and Africa as a whole.

She also absolved women of any blame, saying they have had only a “marginal” role to play in the poor governance that has bedeviled the continent. She stressed the need to have more women at all levels of government and good representation at all arms of government — executive, legislature and judiciary.

Ezekwesili, who was the keynote speaker at the maiden edition of the HID Awolowo Foundation annual lecture in Lagos on Tuesday, said research had shown that in Africa, only five per cent of women are chief executive officers, only 22 per cent of women are cabinet members, 25 per cent are parliamentarians, 29 per cent are managers, while a mere 36 per cent get promotion.

  1. So all the money being looted by the men was spent on men only abi? Girls run the world please, this men would do ANYTHING for us. (Beyonce!!!) And it's true. Women should uphold higher moral standards and watch these men fall in line.

  2. When Stella Odua was given a key position and made Aviation minister what did she do? She was using our money to buy bulletproof G wagon.. abi na Diezani you wan talk? Abeg leave matter for marthias. Corruption and mismanagement have no gender sensitivity.

  3. She's right. Greedy men have enjoyed a greater part of being in charge with little or nothing to show for it.

    1. And they save most of the money in hairy banks.
