A University don, Dr Saidat Beki has accused women as the major cog in the wheel of progress of their women folks when they make adventures into politics.
Beki said that with the population of women and their children, if they truly support themselves, the men would not be able to stand before them.
Speaking on Thursday at Savannah Event Hall venue of an awareness programme organized for the All Progressives Congress Party, APC, the University of Ilorin lecturer said that in times past, funding of campaigns used to be a challenge for the women folk in campaigns but with the support of women for fellow women, such would not be an issue.
Earlier, the APC kwara Women leader, Hajia Ramota Okin Abolaji in her welcome address expressed her reservation on the manner in which women are marginalized in the scheme of things in the party and else where.
She however said that it will not deter women in lending their support towards the party in view of their population in the national demographic structure.
In his address as Chairman of the party, Mr Bashir Omolaja Bolarinwa, BOB expressed gratitude to women in forgiving men for marginalizing them.
Bolarinwa made reference to the way a female contestant Dr Farida Dantata was edged out during the party primaries promised that issue of women would be looked into with special consideration in future because they are a force to reckon with in the nation’s polity.
In attendance at the event was Hon Minister for Information and Tourism, Alh. Lai Mohammed who was used the opportunity to debunk insinuations that APC was trying to turn kwara to an annex of Lagos state saying that such statement was a kind of cheap blackmail on his team and party.
