Founder of Kudirat Initiatives For Democracy (KIND), Hafsat Abiola-Costello has challenged Nigerian women to demand their political power and rights.
Abiola-Costello, daughter of the presumed winner of the June 12, 1993, presidential election, the late Chief M.K.O. Abiola whose wife, Alhaja Kudirat Abiola was also assassinated in Lagos, gave the charge recently at an event organized by her organization in Lagos.
The event themed Consultative Forum on Women Political Participation in Lagos State featured several facilitators and participants from Lagos and beyond.
The activist said Nigerian women are among the strongest in the world and the most relegated on earth. “Women are not really valued in our society, we are almost like slaves. This situation is not going to change until we demand the power and the right that are ours,” she said.
