Dr. Zainab Gimba, More Reasons Why You Should Elect Women To Represent You.
Sadly, most Nigerian elected public office holders continue to misappropriate, divert, siphone or silly loot away the monies budgeted for the constituency projects. However, in this failed Nigeria, there are still a handful of public office holders that have their sanity and integrity intact. There are people who still care about what they would be remembered for.
