Women Groups take on Buhari over First Lady

More than fourteen Nigerian women groups have signed a statement condemning the derogatory remarks President Muhammadu Buhari made about his  wife last week in Germany.

“Mr. President’s comment connotes a nostalgic and repugnant invocation of historical patriarchal oppression and subjugation of Nigerian women, which has over the past alienated and denied Nigerian women access and a level playing ground to compete equally with their male counterparts both in public and personal spaces.”

The women organizations came together under the aegis of the Nigerian Feminist Forum, NFF.

“Mr. President Sir, we Nigerian women hereby categorically state that we are no less important than our male citizens. We matter equally. It is inexcusable and utterly condemnable to refer to the first lady of Nigeria and indeed any other woman as belonging to the ”kitchen”.
