The lawmaker representing Kogi West, Senator Dino Melaye, has reacted to the recent comment by President Muhammadu Buhari that his wife belongs in his kitchen.
The Senator said that Nigerian women are special, endowed and they should belong in the presidency and not only in the kitchen.
Recall that President Buhari had reacted to an ‘explosive’ interview his wife granted the BBC, where she said she may not back her husband at the next election unless he reshuffles his cabinet.
In his response, the president, who was in Germany on a three-day visit to discuss issues relating to security and economy, laughed and replied, “she belongs to my kitchen,my living room And the other room.”
But speaking with youths at the Nasarawa state University, Keffi on Thursday, Melaye said, “Our women must stand and always do the right thing.
“The women of this country are very special and well endowed, and I do not agree that your place is only in the kitchen.
“Your place is even in the presidency. And I want to assure you that with the support of everyone, you will get to your landmark.”
Speaking further, Melaye addressed the issue of leadership in Nigeria.
According to him, the leaders of the country including himself, have failed their generation, the youths and the Nigerian people.
He said, “Democracy is government of the people, by the people and for the people; we should never allow it to become ‘greediocracy’. Greediocracy is government of the greedy, by the greedy and for the greedy.”
