Gov. Oshiomole wants women to contest during Edo governorship election

The Edo State governor made the revelation during an event organised by his wife Lara Fortez to celebrate International Women’s Day in Edo State.
“I am happy that a woman has stepped out for the governorship primaries. It is important that we do not expect that men will get to a point where they will be tired of domination and will say, ‘you know, we have dominated you enough, you women, come and take over power.’ It is never going to happen. The only way women will take power is not to wait for men to beg them to do so. They have to stand their ground because in Edo State, two out of every three votes are cast by women. “It, therefore, means that women have the numbers, they have the patience and what it takes to contest and win elections. It is not about money. If it were about money, I wouldn’t have been able to contest and win. The first thing is your heart, your conviction and then your brain and God has given everything to women.”
