1:19 pm
and let's take you through some of the headlines now the u.s. congress has passed a bipartisan bill to avoid another government shutdown it does not include money for the border war with mexico though instead he plans to declare a national emergency to secure the funding john hendren has more from washington d.c. the opponents of the president's now have two options they could pass a bill forbidding him from using these funds for a border wall that would likely pass the house of representatives where democrats are in control but it would likely not pass in the senate in even if it did the president could veto it and then there would have to be a two thirds majority in order to override that so they're unlikely to succeed in that route the other option they can take is to go to court and say this is not a national emergency. the senior democrat on the u.s.

nigeria is africa's largest democracy but it has one of the lowest percentage is female political representation on the continent women make up only six percent of the country's national assembly and no nigerian woman has ever been elected president vice president or governor so what should be done to increase women's participation in government well joining us to discuss that in. rio doing to see it she is a politician and gender activists and already nigeria christina she's a social democratic party candidate running for a seat in the house of representatives also and. she founded an organization whose objective is to promote female politicians in africa and in lagos isabella i can say she is the host of the nigerian politics program political politike that lets. good chatting hand ladies and christina do you remember that moment when you
1:23 pm
feel i am going to run i am a politician when did you know. i've known that for many years ago. i wanted to make i knew i wanted to sing make a difference in the world i knew that i want to be stressing but i just didn't know how and when or if it was going to be on the governmental level or on the non-governmental level but. what i didn't know. what i didn't really think about was what i was what i have experienced as a female politician do you want to give us one story that's very vivid that explained that experience was. my story had many souses but i guess that this one when i came out to run for office i first of all i worked as an assembly for two years and i worked very closely with the later and while i was
1:24 pm
there i had developed a strong interest in becoming a lead grader because most of the legislative their work there are either incompetent or not really sure what they're they're really not sure what they're doing some of them are not there for the right reasons. now when i decided to run i joined the. political party in office if he sees. what i joined. the governor of the state had a mockery and he told me that will me what do you think he would give me. what do you think and what did he say how did he tell you to step down. were there was a mockery there were three one primary but the first two went well he was very happy with my background and the way i introduced myself and what i said i wanted to do
1:25 pm
for the people why i was running for office but the third one didn't go down well with me. called all the candidates in the state and when i got my card he called me up i stood up he called me by my name and i stood up and he said to me i scored seven percent and he looked at another guy and said you scored ninety percent and i was standing there wondering how the court what if you put us on to court and you've got to be are you going to accept the decision of a balcony christina let's come and say honey because he said you know you'll say he had many chances why do you think he still can't quite be candid conference because i think i think you have to be honest i think marty i was i feel i said that the governor felt that the other guy had more money than myself all right good story bad story. abdiel. for you getting into politics when you
1:26 pm
told you will strengthen your family that this is what you were going to do was a reaction. i was crazy to going to politics or the young woman who has young keep the thought i was in wasn't she was we what i was doing. the folks i was crazy so why do you want to go into. it don't need one man who has a kind heart like you important politics has a lot of people but actor won't question if we don't john politics as good people then how can we change the game of the politics how can we bring to our people to deep end up democrats so that was a major reason and when they went to start their hearts the question said they were going to support me the have a good heart i have the mind of the people at heart. so i wanted to share one of the perspectives from our community and it kind of echoes what you were saying
1:27 pm
there about what people first told you when we asked our community why do you think there are more women in nigeria in politics low any is one of the people that responded and he said women are meant to bear children not to injure themselves in politics so bad said we got lots of people who disagree with him and i want to play a video comment from one of those people she sent us this is the executive director of step one theory and she's also an author and a job. and she explains some of these thinkings that lead to women not wanting to go into politics have a listen there is no way we will not one day we visited named you and politics lies in our culture. for example i have a friend who is willing for the house of representatives and she was asked if she had to keep permission from my husband before only four years this is the situation we find here. and i think to improve this we need to. begin to get the image of my digital political parties to ensure the world has additional women in key
1:28 pm
political positions as well as the continual goes on the buttons of to leadership positions and the rule to come in this. so in do you are working to tell the stories of women in politics and of course you also ran in your primary to talk to us about that the things that you face and link it to that first tweet that i read there because there's a lot of people that feel the same way if you did. well i mean the conversation when you're running for office my family where i come from. my family my mom supports my brother did not and then back home if you're not married i'm not married it's a problem oh you're not married yet you're still young why you're doing this and then if you're married as a nigerian woman and your husband does not come from where you come from are trying to run for office in the like or your husband is not from here it means you or your loyalty to your husband's people and then if you're married to you know your
1:29 pm
husband is not from there you are running your husband the husband's place so no issue to oh you don't come from here so we just do not have a place this so much does the talk of your lose your prostitutes there's the whole mansplaining every time you're trying to get something done someone who is not really as intelligent as you are trying to tell you this is how to go about it you're meeting with people and you know i would mean obviously i know audience would love to hear a little bit of the mansplaining you've experienced can you remember i like my signing or if things were here in the shack you know you come i came from the national. i walked at the head office of our party course after presented my party in the media have done a lot of work like that you go to the village and you go oh and a young man's his young minute he goes you know this politics thing ha let me tell you what about the i'm like no i've been here for a while i've done this have done that yes but you know you're
1:30 pm
a woman let me teach you and it's very condescending there's a nature to it and when you try to tell them look i know what i'm doing you are you're taught to be rude of course your terms for women was strong you know there's the b. word that i can't mention here you be called rude you're trying to be a man you're. a lot of people also tell you belong in the kitchen what i mean is because you're not married that's why you have the time for all of this when you marry us about and then there's the f. word where they think that. and it's about being on the sea or you know one of those families yes i am one of those feminists exactly why i'm here is that i married when and you are saying it is very true because cultural conditioning and the media that's the space i play in is also complicit in portraying women in politics so the even things like movies things like soap operas those are particular one i watched and a woman was running for office and the men around her in her party told her she
1:31 pm
needed to get married just so she could have a better chance at running so i think the media doesn't always portray women who are in politics give them enough space give them enough mileage but that being said some of these women also have the restaurants ability to push themselves forward so i host a political program called political politica and i made it a conscious decision to be to as many women as possible but i have had instances where our reach out to a woman and she will tell me that her husband said she has to be back at home at a second time and he doesn't want to on the roads another woman has told me she was doing a photo shoot and i said this is only going to take thirty minutes of your time i'm coming with my crew to record you to give you an opportunity to speak about what you're offering people but yet you're finding excuses so i will tell you about the nine you saw tell you about child so i think the media can do all knots more by
1:32 pm
given ample opportunities for these kind of conversations to happen if you don't only be a special edition for women in politics with men in politics should become the norm and i think women themselves need to call themselves for what they can't always blame anybody and the other thing is that some of the other women don't believe in supporting women they put a glass ceiling and that's ceiling and at senate i've had people tell me that look if you're going to run for. the best you get deputy governor all household for you into senate but presidency forgets about governorship forget about a woman can only do well at sending a woman can do lots of people who have started. isabella it's interesting yeah because i just saw a tweet that said the same thing this is al has done this is a man saying it has and says women in a jury are the enemy of themselves they don't vote a woman candidate we saw in the past when a woman president got only one vote during party primaries while many women were
1:33 pm
among the delegates so that's one person echoing that intimate that there is not i don't port i just want to give you one more for just one second there wanted to give one more perspective because i want to share this this is from who writes ingrained prejudice against women is deep rooted in one theory or no matter how subtle you find this even happens in some purse world countries that are guilty of this she belongs either in bed or in the kitchen and not in an office and it will take a long time to get over this so i bring this one up gas and audience because we know that this same type of thinking has been seen even the highest levels of nigerian politics a passive one over to you in the indian avenue and i know you want to get in here but let me just play this because then you can balance on the back of this this is your president president bihari back in twenty sixteen talking about where women should be where their place should be have a less. indi
1:34 pm
go ahead. i would say that i do not think that president will hire is the person to talk about women's participation in politics or to sound off on him but one thing is very clear his wife did show up that does not belong to any of those rooms and she's not campaigning for him so that's an issue for the day now going forward that statement women hate each other or do not support that with any doesn't mean their social conditioning of course a lot of women in one two are on that be tricky and do not believe that they belong in sets and spaces it's not out of reach for the next woman i mean mill politicians when ogun state this we can deal with the western in each other and that does not come out as men hate or the men men mill politicians arrest themselves all the time it doesn't come out as men thought i meant but does not it is a very easy to true out for disadvantaged groups primarily being women it's very
1:35 pm
easy to trust women and one woman does not agree with the other or we men hit all the women these we men are not conditioned even i was not socialized no conditions what's leadership not to see women you know as neat as if my mom did not end up breaking down more than becoming a professional herself i don't think i'll have seen it most of her sisters were married off before they even touch ten years old that is the norm where i come from you know so women don't know what there is that socialization there is that socialization to see that and your husband is telling you these young men on sweet sound that writing this kind of writing those things are not in your fifty's or sixty's they've been lots of my generation so girls like me who are seen as i remember is that understood many girls are coming just what with many wild ideas you know wanting to take over the war but by the time to get to jess to god as we does with our conditioning we meet them and then you start hearing them talking about their husbands houses so that's the situation now but we had many a day let me point out yeah you know i think. that because she's here i think we're
1:36 pm
impatient. thank you very much i mean i think you know what to india said it's a mind we what happened might i think we should talk denarii saying women don't support women and i think it's one of the tactics of the men and the maid to be the issue we have is where we should lies our children you know we do what economics for a picnic said you know in twenty so we're today to take on ready is for us to close the gender gap because you know some of this is as children play the structure. i think. of our culture are ok go ahead christina can i just add something to what you said in terms of. i kind of agree with her in terms of we should stop this thing about women who are a woman but if we want to look at it critically. how come we don't have we were we were boys where the boys who are the boys who are running for office how come we
1:37 pm
don't have that woman we don't have answers. christina you can start and i can't have any career and i think they're not also going to hang with him and ask her man in politics for a better a fender and a lot of what are we men i help a lot of. women and one hundred line nance's but indeed there are women as well and each other that they're most likely going to talk about their children and their husbands before they start talking what is now no women in politics at a golden corral you know when i just find out that i. just let him have to strafe because no one can hear you can talk all over each have a beyond your guide. yes thank you very much i think we need to change the narrative of the where we should shall i go to ground and i said i was speaking according to the water economy forum in twenty eight in the i report shows that the why good political leadership because we have not we went up to.
1:38 pm
no address the issue of women in politics in the way that you know they are so many things are practically just part of it was just the lies are too great is also one of the foundation also in the mix imo the economic oppressed of revenge also being a job for them it's a shock to our progress so we need to change american and also we plan what it's called we need for women get more women involved into the practice structure will have more women occupied people who sean what it's called leadership in political practice then we cannot talk about change you know bridging the gap in political leadership and also a change in the mindset of our would be just the doesn't matter what your money does about to put sanchez the women and the people called the only gripe was that there would be grown up part of what the bipod run us said about the potential for women is that women cannot be double women correct that are you know that's why it's on women why is there not going to be ok we want to go out of representation i
1:39 pm
represent the people if you can get caught governorship was the sean or chairmanship position which some articles have been so i think you know we have a lot of usuals all sectors that need to be thought of where we want to address ok women empowerment ok yes i mean i'm going to live on a little bit thank you thank you is that the way you're going i want to show you this picture keeping following on nigeria the sign twenty nineteen special programs and special coverage in order that twitter tweets going out that you will see this site is here this was a former candidate for this time and a lot of shit so her name is bobby and i could feel a and she dropped out. in january she's very prominent she's a former minister very well known she talks about the barriers to competing in politics in nigeria have a listen because of. where we. or the party to.
1:40 pm
or the party platforms part of what happened was it was impossible for them to be primaries or when the fact. they were asked for. counterpart. different political parties very important for you to actually kind of electoral breed. so the running. sweetly was one thing that actually really was all over very excited about it but of course when she left that race there was a lot of talk have a look at this here this is being circulated online this week one person says what happened is a major setback in the possibility of a female president in syria she has set a bad record for female politicians and it's very unfortunate this is coming after accusations of wrong during during the campaigning you do here please let's not
1:41 pm
