As the advocacy for women in politics continues to gain wider acceptance across the globe, it is no longer a case of speculations whether women will do well if given the opportunity to compliment their male counterparts in the business of governance as many of them have distinguished themselves at various instances both home and abroad.
When OHAFIA TV News beamed our searchlight around to access the readiness of women in partisan politics, our research popped up a rare female politician of Abia descend (descent) in London, UK, a native of Amaokayi Ugwueke in Bende Local Government Area, Abia State, a Labour Party member in U.K.
As Lewisham Councillor, Chief H. E. Amb. Cllr Caroline Kalu (Ada kaibeya Nma 1) has partnered with Ihezie Foundation Book Relief to donate books to primary schools, in the London Borough of Lewisham, a gesture she has finalized (finalised) arrangements to extend home, Abia State.
According to her revelations during a telephone chat with OHAFIA TV News Editor, Comr Amos Kalu, the elegant Councillor revealed more.
“I have donated School chairs and tables to my community school Amaokayi community school Ugwueke , Bende Local government Area.
“I have a lot to bring home to aid learning. I am working with the office of Mrs Ngozi Erondu, special adviser to Abia State Governor on Diaspora affairs. l have informed her that l have free books for our dear state”, she said.
The Councillor further revealed that she has already done a lot in the borough in the area of education which forms the cardinal point of her focus in politics as a woman because when you educate the youths, you secure the future.
“This exercise started with 10,000 free books to 4 of our primary schools in my ward (Evelyn ward) and another 22,000 free books to another 12 lewisham primary schools…
Abia State first delivery will be 500,000 thousand free books”, she assured.
When asked if her focus is on education, she responded in the affirmative.
“Yes, and also youth empowerment, women empowerment etc”
Indeed, the desire of Nigerian politicians in Diaspora to show interest to improve the nature of political socialisation back home is a sign that there is room for improved representation in Nigeria.
