    Acha hizo Danganya toto za viti Maalumu, huyu Raisi Jonathan kawaweka Viongozi wanawake kwenye Sekya Nyeti haswaa...

    Gender activists, with Nigerian First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan leading the pack, have won a significant battle in their quest for more women representation in government with the final unveiling ofPresident Goodluck Jonathan’s cabinet last Thursday.The number of female appointees in the cabinet represents about 31 percent of the 42-member cabinet. It may even be more as the president is yet to replace the rejected ministerial nominee from a named State.

    In the new cabinet led by Jonathan, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala(in the picture), who is expected to run the Ministry of Finance and will be given more responsibilities to superintend the economy in an expanded role

    Other female members of the cabinet are Diezani Alison-Madueke(Petroleum Resources), Prof Ruqayyatu Rufai (Education), Stella Oduah-Ogiemwonyi (Aviation), Hadiza Ibrahim Mailafa(Environment), Omobola Johnson Olubusola, (Communication Technology) and Ama Pepple (Lands and Housing)Others are Sarah Reng Ochekpe (Water Resources), Hajiya Zainab Maina (Women Affairs and Social Development) Hajiya Zainab Ibrahim Kuchi (Minister of State, Niger Delta Affairs), Prof. Viola Onwuliri (Minister of State Foreign Affairs), Erelu Olusola Obada(Minister of State, Defence) and Olajumoke Akinjide (Minister of State for FCT).
    Not only has Jonathan appointed more women into cabinet positions than his 13 predecessors, both military and civilian, in Nigeria’s 50 years of independence, he assigned them to some of the most critical ministries to the economy and his transformational agenda.
