Following the decline in the number of women elected into elective offices in the 2023 general election, women groups in the country have called for more inclusion in the political process of the country. The Women Advocates Research and Documentation Centre (WARDC) in collaboration with Women’s Rights Advancement and Protection Alternative (WRAPA) said the issue of women’s participation in politics and governance must be addressed in Nigeria.

The groups made their positions known during a South-West public hearing on the 2023 general election with the theme, “The Impact of Violence and Corruption in the 2023 Elections.” Other groups that supported the project include The MacArthur Foundation in conjunction with NCAA, Women in Politics Forum, GECORN, 100 Women Lobby Group, Gender Technical Unit and Womanifesto.
