A former president of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, has said women are more reliable in politics than their male counterparts.He said this when some national executive officers and members of the Nigeria Association of Women journalists visited him at his Hilltop residence in Abeokuta to present him a Father of the Nation Award during the visit.

He, however, noted women were not often given the opportunity to exhibit their potential because of cultural and religious inhibitions.Obasanjo said the task of building a nation could not be achieved only by men.According to him, politics must be played with decency, dignity and honour that women are known for.He said, “One of the best journalists that ever served me was a woman, and that was the late Mrs Oluremi Oyo (The Punch Newspaper Nov.5, 2014)

It is not everyday you hear a man admit to such valuable truth and Obasanjo is one known to speak frankly about issues.

Anyway, what are your thoughts on this?
