Nigeria's Minister of Women Affairs Urges Women to Strategise for Increased Representation in Govt.
Hajiya Zainab Maina, Minister of Women Affairs and Social Development, on Tuesday advised women to adopt strategies to increase their participation in decision making processes.
Maina gave the advice in Abuja at the ongoing capacity building workshop for female parliamentarians on Attaining Affirmative Action for Women.
The minister said, "The low representation of women in government persists. In the general elections of 2003, women made up three per cent of elected officials".
