HER VIEWS ON WOMEN AND POLITICS

Princess Olatokunbo has urged Nigerian women to grow their political aspiration beyond the parish level by playing actively in national and municipal political levels. She said “the argument that many women are not in politics is not sustainable going by their numbers at political rallies and campaigns,

According to her  “women possess the numerical strength to take charge of public affairs but unfortunately we are still involved in politics at the parish and community level, if more of us can grow beyond the local government terrain in our political aspirations, capturing federal political power by one of us is assured in a short time. Women constitute an appreciable number of the educated class in this country and the electorate and therefore can use the potential power to change fortunes in the society. The proper and constructive organization of women in our society from all walks of life, including the market women, will provide nothing short of relevance in politics for us”.
