In preparation for the 2023 general elections, it has been reported that the Emir of Keffi, HRH Alhaji Shehu Yamusa III, has urged Nigerian women to show interest in the Politics in order to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023, saying it would not be impossible.
He reportedly stated thatNigerians, regardless of their ethnicity or political affiliations, must separate cultural sentiments from politics for the best leaders to emerge in the country.
The monarch reportedly made this statement on Thursday, when members of the National Democratic Institute International Working Group for Supporting the Advancement of Gender Equality programme, visited him in his palace.
According to him, “Most importantly, I will like to draw the attention of the entire nation to the fact that culture and politics are two different things. We often mistake the two for each other, and that is why most women can’t come out to contest for elective positions. But they are part of us, and we must carry them along.’
