President Muhammadu Buhari has denied reports which label him as a chauvinist because his administration has a low percentage of female representation.
Buhari reacted to the reports while speaking with the Nigerian community in Poland yesterday, December 2nd. He said,
‘I have plans for all Nigerians. I am not a male chauvinist. If I’m a chauvinist will I give the Finance Ministry to women?’’ .
President Buhari also stated that his government will continue to maintain focus and deliver on security, economy and the fight against corruption.
‘Those in the North East will tell you that in spite of the recent setbacks, there is a difference between the time we came and before. We are not doing badly on security, economy and agriculture. We have virtually stopped the importation of food especially rice and we are saving a lot of money. We now have food security and that has come with fiscal security because a lot of young educated people have not regretted going back to the farms and earning a respectable living. I am afraid, this is not receiving good publicity… but a lot of people in the rural areas are enjoying the benefits of our interventions in agriculture,’’ he said.
