Nigeria has produced 180 governors and 241 ministers since 1999, a research has shown.
The research also shows that about 545 senators and 1,800 House of Representatives were elected within the same period.
But, most Nigerian women and youths have been left out of power in the last two decades.
These facts are contained in a book – “Nigeria Democracy without Development – How to fix it”- by a renowned Author and Researcher, Dr. Omano Edigheji.
The book said in part: “Since 1999, all four presidents and four vice presidents have been male. At the ministerial level, 85.06 per cent of the 241 ministers have been male.
“In July 2019, President Muhammadu Buhari announced the nomination of 43 ministers for his second term. Out of these, only seven, that is 16 per cent, were women.
“In the four administrations since May 1999 to May 2019, 93.81% of Senators have been male compared to 6.19 per cent female.
“Out of the 1,800 members of the House of Representatives in the period from May 1999 to May 2019, only 93 members(5.2 per cent) have been male, compared to 1,707 (94. 8 per cent) male
“The only female to have emerged as Speaker of the House in July 2007, Patricia Ette, was removed after barely five months in office.
“The declining trend of women representation continued in the 9th National Assembly that was inaugurated on June 11, 2019. Out of 109 Senators, only seven were women. While of the 360 members of the House of Representatives sworn in, only 11 were women.”
