The Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi hs said women are more productive and less corrupt than men.
He stated this during Channels TV presidential Townhall series on Sunday while fielding questions on how he would increase women representation and participation in governance.
The former Governor of Anambra state said he worked with women more than men during his tenure because they have the capacity to deliver.
The LP flagbearer expressed the wish that men would emulate women and be more contented.
Obi further promised that women would play a key role in his government if elected president in February.
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”.
