Ex Education Minister, Dr. Oby Ezekwesili, has blamed male political leaders for the poor state of affairs in Nigeria and Africa, saying women only have a “marginal” role for poor governance in the continent. “Women are incredible human resource that we must put to use, and what this says to us is that we need to be more intentional and deliberate. “Research shows that when many more women are at decision-making level, there is less corruption and a wise society would know that empowering its women is smart economics. The only way to honour the memory of Yeye Oodua is to take it to that next level; disrupt this model, which is no longer sustainable.”
