The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi claim’s that women are less corrupt and more productive than men in Nigeria.
Peter Obi Says Nigerian Women Are Less Corrupt Than Men
The former Anambra governor disclosed this on Sunday while speaking during The Peoples Townhall, organised by Channels Television.
According to him, women are easily satisfied while their men counterparts are usually greedy and will keep on stealing public funds.
Obi said that was the reason he appointed women into key positions during his 8-year tenure as Anambra governor.
He promised to bring more women into government if elected as president because they are hungrier to change the country positively.
“I can say it without anything; women are more productive in Nigeria than men any day any time. I worked with them when I was in the banking industry, they saved the bank. When they believe in anything they go for it.
“I wish our men will do the same thing. And they (women) are less corrupt; they are easily satisfied with little.
“Men will just go on and on forgetting that it is public money they are taking. I am very sorry about that, men. I am one of you but I have to say the truth of what I observed,” Obi said.
The former Anambra governor recalled how he appointed women into key positions during his 8-year tenure in the state.
Obi said, “As governor, I was about to set up a ministry of men’s affairs because women took over. It is simple, go and verify.
“As governor of Anambra State, my Chief of Staff, the Permanent Secretary of Government House, the commissioner for finance, the Accountant General, the Head of Service, the Commissioner for Youths and Sports, the Commissioner for Education, the Commissioner for Local Government were all women; they took over.”
The LP chieftain promised that his administration will be made up of mostly women and youths because they are hungrier to change the country positively.
