The Ooni of Ife, His Royal Majesty,
Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Ojaja 11, has canvassed for female president, adding that they have the strengths and potential of good leadership.
The revered monarch stated that women have what it takes to be number one citizen of the country.
He added that women can rise to be president of Nigeria because they have the strengths and potential of good leadership.
Ooni made this assertion at the opening session of the second edition of “Queen Moremi, the Musical, Reloaded” in Lagos.
According to him, we should try to uplift the position of women because they have a lot to offer society.
He noted that there were lots of God-given talents in women, which were demonstrated through the heroic deeds of Queen Moremi Ajasoro (QMA) many years ago.
“We’ll keep telling the story of Queen Moremi Ajasoro to bring out the strengths, talents and powers of women and what they can offer to our society to make a difference.
” Our prayer is that someday, we will have a female president, probably, they may even do better.
“We had only struggled to have a female speaker but she could not scale through to the end so we need to support them to excel in future,” he said.
The Ojaja II also called on both government and private organisations to continue to support the cause of the girl-child to give them a sense of pride in the society.
“We’ll keep telling the story of Queen Moremi Ajasoro to focus on how the society can uplift the girl-child to have a sense of pride and occupy a place in the progress of the country in future,” he said.
