Speaking at a book presentation titled “Nigerian Women Pioneers and Icons” written by Prof. Bolanle Awe, the first female lecturer in Nigeria, former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Thursday, said it was time Nigeria has the first elected female governor to pilot the affairs of a state in the country.
 
The former president who spoke at the event which was held at the MUSON Centre in Lagos Island, Lagos, said the world is witnessing a time where women were taken over the mantle of leadership in several parts of the world, saying that Nigeria should not be an exception.
 
He cited the example of Britain where a woman had just assumed the mantle of leadership at the topmost hierarchy, while being optimistic that the United States was about to witness the emergency of a female president for the first in the person of Hilary Clinton.

“This is the time for women to reap the labour of these great women of the past,” he said, adding that women in Nigeria were doing extremely well and should be allowed greater involvement in the affairs of the nation.
 
Obasanjo, who was represented by Dr. Femi Majekodunmi said apart from physical strength which men excelled the women, the female folks were seriously competing with men in other areas and that he believed that it was time the nation produced elected governors.
 
“Women are patient, women persevered; they are now in many areas. Soon, we will be having elected women governors in Nigeria and soon, women will take over,” he said.
