Ministerial list: Action Aid Nigeria decried exclusion of Women, Youths, PLWD


ActionAid Nigeria, a Non  Govenernmental  Organisation which is  committed to human rights and social  and  economic   justice  has decried  the lopsidenedness  against  women , , Youths and those living  with dissabilities in  the list of  ministerial  nominees  submitted to  National Assembly by president Muhammadu Buhar saying it fell short of meeting the 35%  affirmative action.

The Country Director, ActionAid Nigeria, Ene Obi  said  her organisation  is dismayed  that despite the  assurances     by the ruling All People’s Congress (APC)   and the . President Muhammadu Buhari  to give women,  youths  and those  living with disabilities  adequate opportunities to contribute to nation development only seven  women could  make  the  list of 43 ministers.

The Country  Director noted that by the list  women constitutes  insignificant 16.6 percent which  is grossly inadequate for a gender that is  more than 50% of the total population of the country.

It is unbelievable that rather than progressing, Nigeria is retrogressing in delivering its commitment on inclusive governance.  Women constitute about 50% of Nigeria’s population, and we believe that Nigeria has qualified women who can contribute to the national development of the country.

“ActionAid Nigeria therefore calls on the President to retract the list and make it inclusive by nominating more women, youths and persons living with disability as it is not too late to do the right thing and keep to the promise made to the Nigerian citizens. 
” Additionally, Mr. President should further include women, youths and persons living with disability in other positions such as Directors of Boards and institutions and heads of Departments and Agencies. We are reminding the President that the National Gender Policy is in force and it should be complied with, not just in letter but in  words and actions.” She demanded.
