Women in Anambra state have been challenged to ensure they played active role in shaping the political climate of the state, particularly ahead of the November 6 governorship election.

Senior Special Assistant to Governor Willie Obiano on Social Re-Orientation, Dr. Mitchelle Onugbolu gave the advice in Awka weekend during the 2021 Akwa Ibom Women Conference, themed, “Repositioning Women for Adaptability in an Ever Evolving World”

She regretted the apathetic disposition of most women in political activities, blaming it on age-long indoctrination and culturalization.

She said the situation was worsened by few who found themselves in political positions but could not deliver due to lack of adequate preparations and apparent intimidation from their male counterparts.

She said, “I think it’s a long stretch indoctrination and culturalization of women not believing in themselves. People always equate women to children and think they are like them.

“Sometimes, men are bully, instilling fears in women that they can’t do it. For them any woman that comes out will be frustrated.

“Women must have retrospection of themselves. If you can do it and have what it takes, lobby for it and you’ll see the men supporting you.”

Earlier, President of Akwa Ibom Community in the State, Akparawa Edet said the event was targeted at rebranding the association and reshaping minds of members, especially the women towards positive thinking.

He said, “Since a new administration came on board, we’ve been trying to rebrand the association, in terms of our activities and the way we think and reason.

“This event, the first of its kind in the history of the association in the state is part of the rebranding. Our women have a lot to contribute to the development of the state, including voting for credible candidate in the forthcoming election.

On the alleged marginalization of non indigenes in the state, Edet said, “You can’t rule out marginalisation in any society because human wants are insatiable. Even some of the indigenes themselves complain of marginalization.

“As non indigenes, we need a governor that will provide us with enabling environment for growth and business success. We’ll keep on pushing for positive actions to ensure better lives for our people in the state.”
