Women In Politics :The other Side Of Rt Hon. Lynda Chuba-Ikpeazu You Never Knew
A lot has been said of the woman called Lynda Chuba-Ikpeazu
Currently a RT Honorable at the Nigeria Federal house of REPRESENTATIVE, she has been described as a woman with the combination of beauty and brain
At the 2020 Daily Trust Dialogue she proved why she is called beauty and brain when she aired her view on the brand of Democracy Nigeria is practicing
Hear her "What we have in Nigeria now is democratic GOVERNMENT and I don’t think we have democratic system to support it
"For instance, if you look at our last two decade of democratic rule, you will notice the high rate of fluctuating numbers of women in both elective and appointive positions
"But in truth, democracy ought to be all about equitable representation for all interest groups in the society and sadly in Nigeria we have continuously struggled to achieve this perhaps largely due to the absence of political party ideology which remains a key weakness in the Nigeria setup”
No doubt, Ikpeazu remains one of the Country’s fearless speaker of democratic standing and such personality must e looked at twice
