Remi Tinubu Advocates Increased Women’s Representation in Leadership Roles
Oluremi Tinubu, the first lady of the federation, has emphasized the need for a reconsideration of the current representation of women in leadership positions in the country.
She asserted that granting women more opportunities to hold leadership roles will enable them make significant contributions to the nation’s progress and advancement, rather than being marginalized and overlooked.
She made this submission during a remark at a book launch by the wife of the Chief of Army Staff, Mrs Salamatu Yahaya, titled: “Strengthening the NAOWA Narrative,” Goldennewsng gathered.
Mrs Tinubu, who was represented by Senator Nora Daduut, said that women in leadership positions should be reviewed upwards, noting that the book will go a long way in enriching the lives of not only NAOWA members, but Nigerian women.
Author of the book and President of the Nigerian Army Officers Wives Association, Yahaya said the book was borne out of the quest to drive women’s participation in leadership.
She said Nigerian women were important when it came to the development and growth of the country, adding that they, therefore, should not be left out when it comes to leadership positions because their presence was vital.
Yahaya noted: “Strengthening the NAOWA narratives and all Nigerian women is important, especially in leadership positions, because Nigerian women have vital contributions to make to the growth and development of the country.
“The book will serve as a foundation to build on in the giant strides of wives of Nigerian Army officers and Nigerian women who continue to break barriers in their places of endeavour”
