Lagos lawmaker, Mrs. Mojisoluwa Alli-Macaulay, has explained why she is passionate about encouraging more women into politics. Assistant Editor, Yetunde Oladeinde, in this report, captures her mindset on the need to prepare the girl-child to participate in nation building.
THE House Committee Chairman on Women Affairs and Poverty Alleviation (WAPA), Mrs. Mojisoluwa Alli-Macaulay has explained her persistent calls on governments at all levels to do more in encouraging females to participate in politics and nation building. The lawmaker, who recently charged the Lagos State government to constitutionalize a policy that will aid the participation of the female folk, young and old, so that they can contribute their quota to nation building, said the task of building a better Nigeria cannot be left in the hands of men alone.
The Lagos lawmaker stated this on 11th October 2021 which happens to be the international day of the girl child, while speaking on the floor of the assembly during a plenary session. Alli-Macaulay, a prominent female politician who started out as a grassroots mobiliser for her party, enjoined the female folks to be ready to make the necessary sacrifices that will see them make impact in politics and nation building. She also canvassed for the creation of a level playing ground by political parties in order to encourage more women into politics.
She harped on the need for policies that will encourage the girl-child to dream about become a nation builder. According to her “Every year all girls are reassured of the importance and encouraged to have access to the opportunity to grow and maximize their potentials. In the same vein, the day is so designated to mitigate against gender based challenges including early child marriages, poor learning opportunities, violence, discrimination, lack of access to health care, excused opportunities that girls are facing around the world. full story on
