Women are less corrupt than men – Obi

Women are more productive and less corrupt than men, according to Peter Obi, the presidential candidate for the Labour Party.

He said this on Sunday when answering concerns about how he will boost women’s representation and engagement in politics during Channels TV’s presidential Townhall series.

Because women are able to give birth, the former governor of Anambra state claimed he worked with them more frequently than he did men.

The LP flagbearer wished that men would take after women and be happier.

If elected president in February, Obi further pledged that women would have a significant part in his administration.

He said; “I can say it without anything; women are more productive in Nigeria than men any day, any time. I worked with them when I was in the banking industry, they saved the bank. When they believe in anything they go for it.

“I wish our men will do the same thing. And they (women) are less corrupt; they are easily satisfied with little. Men will just go on and on forgetting that it is public money they are taking. I am very sorry about that, men. I am one of you but I have to say the truth of what I observed.

“As governor, I was about to set up a ministry of men’s affairs because women took over. It is simple, go and verify. As governor of Anambra state, my chief of staff, the permanent secretary of Government House, the commissioner for finance, the accountant general, the head of service, the commissioner for youths and sports, the commissioner for education, the commissioner for local government were all women; they took over”.
