Women in politics gain for Nigeria’s democracy — Forensic Institute



Dr Victoria Enape, Pro-tem President, Charted Institute of Forensic and Investigative Professionals of Nigeria (CIFIPN), says that women’s participation in politics will lead to tangible gains for Nigeria’s democracy.

Enape said this on the sideline of the 2022 Igala Women of Substance Merit Award in Abuja on Saturday.

She said that Nigerian women’s active participation in politics would result in greater responsiveness to the needs of Nigerians, increased cooperation across party and ethnic lines and sustainable peace.

Enape advocated that Nigerian women should be given opportunity to become governors like men, saying this would help to advance gender equality.

“It would also affect both the range of policy issues that get considered and the types of solutions that are proposed,” she said

Enape, who was one of the recipients of the Igala Women of Substance Merit Award, said she encouraged and ready to support women who have the heart to participate in politics.

Reacting to the award, Enape said she was happy to be found worthy.

Mrs Priscilla Ojoduyomi, Vice Chairman of Who-Is- Who in Igalaland and host of the award, said the event was to promote the ideals of the culture of Igala people and socioeconomic development.

She listed the criteria of the award to include, remarkable contributions to Igalaland, maintenance of high sense of integrity and promotion of peace and unity among Igala people.

She also said their actions must have impacted positively on the development of Igala people among others.
