At a time the world is clamouring for equal opportunities for men and women, a Nigerian lawmaker has warned against giving women ‘too much opportunity.’
The member of the House of Representatives, Muhammed Kazaure, therefore, warned Nigerian men against being ‘overthrown’ by women.
Mr. Kazaure represents Kazaure/ Roni/Gwiwa/Yankwashi constituency of Jigawa State.
Ironically, Mr. Kazaure’s comments was his own way of marking the International Women’s Day.
Speaking in commemoration of the 2018 Women’s Day at the House on Wednesday, Mr. Kazaure said women should be empowered but not on the same level with men.
The lawmaker said women already have enormous power over men, of which giving them more will condemn the men to the back seat.
He made reference to the fact that he would have to ‘rush down to Kano’ should his wife call him to come home at that moment.
He said women will ‘overthrow’ men if such power is given to them in the public domain.
