Ex-Lagos deputy gov tasks young women on leadership role


Princess Sarah Sosan, former deputy governor of Lagos State, has challenged young women in Nigeria to show more interest in Nigeria politics.

Sosan made the appeal during a 3-day retreat organised for some selected undergraduate female students in Lagos by Women Advocates Research and Documentation Centre (WARDC). She further encouraged women to be bold and determine to be what they aspire to become in the society.

She said, “Women in Nigeria must be visible and not intimidated by men folks,” The former deputy governor lamented on the lack of cooperation among women especially in politics.

“It is true that women hardly support themselves like men when it comes to politics, but those who are courageous always remain unstoppable.”

On the role of money in politics, the former number two citizen of Lagos State admitted that politics all over the world cannot be played without money however, encouraged women not to be put off.

“It is true you cannot play politics in this modern day without money, those with sellable programmes would always be supported.”

She lamented at the neglect accorded women in the country despite their numerical strength and encouraged the young women in Nigeria to be self assertive. Sosan commended Dr. Abiola Akiyode-Afolabi, founding director, WARDC for her efforts in remolding the lives of the young women in tertiary institutions in the country.
