Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has outlined the need for Nigeria to have a female President.
Obasanjo who spoke at the 5th edition of the Egba Dialect Debate and Choral Competition for Secondary Schools in Ogun Central Senatorial District, in Abeokuta, stated that Nigeria can gain experience from both genders.
“From my own view, if we want the country to grow, we should consider both genders, because a hand can’t carry a load to the head alone.
“You can do it as you want, but it should be done as it is supposed to be. We can gain experience from both genders. What’s the difference between the genders? Only the female can get pregnant for nine months and a male can’t. That’s the only difference between us.
“As for me, there’s nothing preventing the female gender from becoming the President of our country.”
