He said: “In Kwara State we are only doing the right thing. We have passed the bill and more than 60 percent space has been allotted to women in our government.

“As elections are around the corner, more women are now stepping up to contest in the next elections. So I would like to also encourage my fellow governors, especially in Edo and Ekiti to keep pushing for the inclusion of women.”
