New Yorkâ€”Anambra Deputy Governor, Mrs Virgy Etiaba said in New York, yesterday that Nigerians should consider the option of a female president in the next dispensation to overcome the countryâ€™s current challenges.
â€œNigeriaâ€™s presidency needs a motherly touch,â€ Etiaba told newsmen on the sidelines of the ongoing 54th session of the UN Commission on the Status of Women, CSW.
The 67-year old Deputy Governor said theÂ consideration of a woman presidency for the country should no longer be delayed.
â€œGod has endowed in women that motherly touch, the ability, that reasoning that keeps people wanting to know and wanting to help,â€™â€™ she said.
Etiaba was sworn in as Nigeriaâ€™s first female Governor in 2006 after Anambra State legislature impeached Governor Peter Obi for alleged â€œgross misconduct.â€™â€™
