Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Lasun Yussuff has advocated for women to be part of Nigeria development.
Lasun stressed the need to accord women their rightful place in the nation’s development through a statement issued on Tuesday by his Chief Press Secretary, Wole Oladimeji.
The statement reads “What is missing in development efforts in Nigeria is the neglection of women as basis for Nigerian development. Women are more than ordinary beings who can just be pacified with an unrealisable affirmative percentage of engagement.
“Women are more prudent than men and they can manage resources far more than men, therefore, for any society to grow or develop, women factor should be taken seriously.
“Women need just a little, which they will naturally manage to spur themselves to wealth. Whereas if men are given such resources it will be spent on frivolity.”
The statement also noted that Lasun Yusuff has embarked on consultation tour around the state to make known his gubernatorial ambition.
