The Chairman, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa has condemned the non-inclusion of any female in the meeting held by southwest leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The NIDCOM boss said it is gender insensitivity that no woman was part of the meeting which held in Lagos State on Friday. Taking to her Twitter account on Saturday, Dabiri wondered why the women leader at least could not have been invited to the meeting. She wrote: “Hmnnn! Meeting of Apc SouthWest Elders/ leaders.NOT ONE SINGLE WOMAN!From the whole of the SouthWest Dia is God oooooo.” https://twitter.com/abikedabiri/status/1522834094853394434 Naija News recalls the meeting convened by a former Governor of Osun State, Chief Bisi Akande was attended by 2023 presidential aspirants of the APC including the party’s National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu; Vice President Yemi Osinbajo; Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State; Chief Olusegun Osoba, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila; Governor Gboyega Oyetola of Osun State; Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State and many others.
