Hostility against female politicians in Kogi, height of intolerance – Guber aspirant, Ahmadu-Afolabi

A female gubernatorial aspirant in Kogi state, under the Labour Party (LP), Dr. Atule Ahmadu-Afolabi has decried the level of political intolerance and hostility against women folk in the state.

Ahmadu-Afolabi who is vying for the governorship poll in November 2023 has vowed never to be deterred by the antics that male politicians adopt to scare women away from the race.

She bared her mind on Tuesday in Abuja at the Party’s Presidential Campaign Office in Abuja during the governorship screening.

The guber aspirant said Kogi State is characterised by so many political abnormalities but only a determined politician like herself, can change the tide.

“My decision to vie for the position and to occupy the Lord Lugard House in Lokoja as the next governor of the state is predicated on the urgent need to salvage the state from imminent collapse, due to maladministration.

“Beyond depriving civil servants their legitimate wages by the current administration, the state’s healthcare system is in a deep mess,” the female contestant stated.

She argued that the human and natural resources that abound in Kogi have not been properly harnessed by successive governments in the state.

“Going through the health institutions, some of them don’t have basic paracetamol. These are the things we are here to change. I will focus on ensuring that Kogi state is economically viable through selfless services,” the governorship hopeful noted.
