Senator Stella Oduah, lawmaker representing Anambra north senatorial district and vice chairman Committee on Women Affairs has described Women Affairs as the bedrock of any government.
She stated this on Wednesday, 27th January 2016 at the inaugural meeting of the Committee of Women Affairs held at the National Assembly Complex, Abuja.
Oduah called for the main streaming of Nigerian women to ensure a more developed society, one that has gender balance .
“As far as I’m concerned women affairs is the bed rock of any government, I do not see how we can move forward if we fail to mainstream women affairs.
“I want to believe that the change we have coming now will have women mainstreamed; be it in capacity building or involvement in governance. We also know that a healthy society is a society that has a balance in gender.
“The Ministry has to be really funded and we will be doing a proper budget analysis,” she said.
Speaking to the Director National Centre for Women Development, (NCWD) Onyeka Onwenu, Oduah pointed out major areas where she expects the agency to focus on, urging the DG to ensure that Nigeria Women will be better taken care of.
