Female legislators unite on inclusion of women’s rights

Female legislators in the National Assembly have formed a team to lobby their male colleagues for the purpose of ensuring the inclusion of women’s rights in the nation’s constitution.

Several attempts made by the women in parliament over the years to ensure the entrenchment of womens rights in the Nigerian constitution had been futile.
However, a former minority leader of the Senate who sponsored the GEO bill in the 8th National Assembly, Senator Biodun Olujimi, said the female federal lawmakers were not taking chances this time round over the matter.
