Nigerian First Lady, Aisha Buhari, on Wednesday said there is a need for gender parity and women participation/inclusion in politics.

Mrs. Buhari restated her stand when she visited both chambers of the National Assembly leading two of her aides and two female ministers to where she observed proceedings on reports of the 1999 Constitutional review.

“ I am here to witness the laying of a report on the amendment of the 1999 Constitution which provides a bill for an act to alter the provisions for the constitution to provide special seats for women in the National and State Houses of Assembly.

“It also provides for an act for affirmative action for women in political party administration,” she said.

While commending the efforts of both chambers of the National Assembly in supporting the cause of women`s participation in politics, the first lady said she looked forward to witnessing progress on the bill.

The first lady was accompanied to the National Assembly by the Minister of Women Affairs, Pauline Tallen and Minister of Finance, Zainab Ahmed.

This is the first time a serving first lady of Nigeria will witness the plenary seasons of both Senate and House of Representatives.
