11:23 pm
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 politico politico. chatty hannity's at christina do you remember that moment where you 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 wanted 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 join to give us one story to tell you faith that explains that experience was. my story have many staffers but. i get that
11:24 pm
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 there i had developed a strong interest in becoming a lead grader because most of the legislative work there are either incompetent or not really sure what they're they're really not sure what they're doing some of they're not there for the right reasons. when i decided to run i join the. political party in office if he sees. what i joined. the governor of the state had a mockery and he told me. he 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
11:25 pm
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 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 one quarter what if you put us on to court and you've got to be are you going to accept the decision of about to make christina let's kind of change our weather because he said you know you'll say we had many chances why do you think he still can't wait to be candid conference because i think i think you have to be honest i think monday i thought ok i feel i said that the governor felt that the other guy had more money than myself all right
11:26 pm
good story bad story. abdul. are you getting into politics when you 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 so the young woman who has young keep the thought i was in wasn't. we what i was doing. the folks i was crazy so why do you want to go into policy. you 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 is 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 when they when they thought their hearts the question said they were
11:27 pm
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 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 wanted 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 presume to do 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
11:28 pm
had to keep permission from my husband be for money for this this is the situation we find here. and i think to improve this we need to. begin to get rid of my digital political parties to ensure the world has additional women in key political positions as well as the continual goes on the buttons of to fuel production positions and to rule the company 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 or you're not married yet you're still young why are you doing this and then if you're married as
11:29 pm
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 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 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 and you know i would love your singing i know audience would love to hear a little bit of the mansplaining you've experienced can you remember i like my signing a stage we're here in the shadow you know you can i came from the national. i walked at the head office of our party of course after present of my party in the media have done a lot of work like that you go to the village and you go oh and
11:30 pm
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 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 the thing fell. 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 say when and you are saying it is very true because cultural conditioning and the media that's the space i play in is also a compass it import train women in politics so you want things like movies things
11:31 pm
like soap operas there's a particular one i watched and a woman was running for office and the men around her in her party told her she 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 restaurant's ability to push themselves forward so i host a political program called political politica and i made it conscious decision to be 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 session 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
11:32 pm
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 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 put 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 wrong for him. the best you get deputy governor all household for you going to senate but presidency forgets about governorship forget about a woman can only do well at standing 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 that this is
11:33 pm
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 among the delegates so that's one person echoing that intimate that there is not i don't port but i just wanted 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. ingrained prejudice against women is deep rooted in one theory or no matter how subtle you find even happens in some first 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 so i mean indian avidya 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
11:34 pm
your president president bihari back in twenty sixteen talking about where women should be where their place should be have a less. indi 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 that's an issue for the day now going forward that statement women hate each other or do not support that women it 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
11:35 pm
come out as men hate or the men men mill politicians arrest themselves all the time it doesn't come out as men thought it meant but does not it is a very easy to true out for disadvantaged groups primarily being women it's very 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 is does for solicitation 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
11:36 pm
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 here you know i think. that because she's here i think we're 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 they were made to be the issue we have been where we should still lives our children you know we do what economics for a picnic said you know in twenty so it's a day 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 that we are sometimes where i kind of agree
11:37 pm
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 don't have that woman we don't have. christina you can start and i can't have any career that again i also got. him and asked her many qualities 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 as each other that they're most likely going to talk about their children their husband before they start talking what is now no women in politics at a golden corral you know when i just find out that. any of the isabella just let him have to strafe because no one can he you can talk all over each have a bill and you go ahead. yes thank you very much i think we need to change the
11:38 pm
narrative of the where we should shall i go to ground and i said i was speaking according to the water economy for us in twenty eight in the i report shows that the why good political leadership because we have not we went up to. 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 i was out to grant is also one of the foundation also in the mix i know the economic our practice of revenge as being a job for them is just not to our progress but we need to change american and also with planning what it's called we need for women get more women involved into the practice structure will have more women occupied people who shawn in political 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 in just the women and the people called the holy grail was that
11:39 pm
there would be grown up part of what the bible run us said about the potential for women that women cannot be double women correct that are you know that's why it's on women why is that not going to be ok we want to go out of representation i represent the people if you can give up the ship was the shawn or chairmanship position which of microcredit been so i think you know we have a lot of usuals all sectors that need to be thought of when we want to address ok women empowerment ok guess i mean i'm going to live on a little bit average and thank you thank you that way you're going to 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 second and she dropped out. in january she's very prominent she's
11:40 pm
a former minister very well known she talks about the barriers to competing in politics in nigeria have a listen because. there were women. or the parties to. or the party platforms part of what happened was it was impossible for them to be primaries or paul or when the fact. they were asked for. counterpart. 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
11:41 pm

11:42 pm
they will say well it's because she's a woman and i'll give you an example when we had the vice presidential debate that was an opportunity for the vice presidential candidates the female candidates present to really make a case not just for themselves but for the gender because we are not starting at the starting block was thirty hundred meters from the starting blocks but sometimes they don't leverage those opportunities and the cultural conditioning like in dimension it's still an issue is still an issue because they're not enough role models they're not you know people coming out to say this is my story and i just wanted to touch on something which is you will see men sponsoring other men and you will see men coming out to endorse men but how many women are doing the same we talk about political godfather as men one montreal that well we don't talk about political godmothers i can mention on my political aisle because i don't have and i can't talk about political godmother so yes it's one thing to say women support women but i think courting them in the open i think can we don't have

the news grid national emergency donald trump is expected to make the declaration this hour after congress passed the spending bill bill without money for his proposed mexico border wall the decision would allow the u.s. president to bypass congress giving him access to billions of dollars to build it we're live at the white house. the munich conference global security is taking center stage in germany more than five hundred leaders and policymakers are meeting to talk about the world's pressing issues from syria yemen and iran to climate change this week to former nato chief anders rasmussen. and. in an interview the venezuelan president says he will not bow to international pressure for him to step down and he has harsh words for the united states. accusing him of trying to be stabilize his country and as nigerians head to the polls on saturday
11:50 pm
for presidential and parliamentary elections we talked to some in the community about the main issues of concern. in the show use the hash tag. along with the news grid live on air and streaming on. line through you tube facebook live on al-jazeera dot com good to have you with us on this friday any moment now we're expecting to hear from u.s. president donald trump as he declares a national emergency to get funding for his mexico border war he's threatened to do it several times before but after agreeing to avoid another government shutdown and sign a bill that does not include a border war the white house says the president will go around congress and make that declaration so we're now waiting for the announcement in the rose garden it is a decision that democrats in congress say they will fight and opponents will likely challenge in court or kimberly how is watching this for us from
11:51 pm
washington with the white house behind her there so kimberly this was in many ways a defining issue of donald trump's presidential campaign back in twenty sixteen and it is with this decision now that we're expecting it is likely to be front and center of his presidency. yeah it was a signature campaign promise on the campaign trail of twenty sixteen and since then donald trump has been working very hard to try and construct his border wall you're right in this latest funding that has come from congress the president did not get what he was looking for he got one point three seven five billion but not for border wall it was for of security fencing and other border security technologies this is a president that likes to win this is a president to like simple straightforward messaging he needs to deliver on his campaign promise because he has been largely blamed for the government shutdown
11:52 pm
that happened a few weeks ago for thirty five days polls showing that not only don't trump was blamed but his party the republican party the president now take another course knowing he can't shut the government down one more time he is signing the spending bill but he is signing it with the announcement or the declaration of a national emergency what this does is this allows the president to have the optics of winning of being able to deliver on that campaign promise that he is going to build this wall what it also does is allows him to access funds that have already been approved by congress in order to deliver for his supporters and you're right this is going to be challenge legally and also in the u.s. congress that's why we expect that will also be a campaign issue come the twenty twenty presidential election so once a president declares this a national emergency as we're expecting kimberly will what's likely to happen next . well first of all there are going to be battles there's going to be
11:53 pm
a ray of legal court challenges but we also know and we've heard from the democrats who now control the house of representatives that they are going to challenge this legislatively that is expected to pass this is a party that is largely for the last two years been in opposition to almost all of donald trump's policies where things get tricky has and is in the senate that is controlled by republicans we know that some republicans in the senate are ideologically opposed to the president using the national emergency declaration in order to access these funds the argument has been made by democrats that this is a precedent you know many would argue that this is a precedent that started about twenty years ago and each president has successively taken more and more power away from congress and its oversight what we expect now is this will become an issue in the u.s. senate if there is a legislative challenge on this whether republicans members of the president's own party will defy him or they will go along with him that is still unclear you know
11:54 pm
this is going to be politically hazardous isn't it for for republicans in the senate kimberly because there's there's pitfalls are the way is in their way whether they choose to back trump or oppose him. right that's the question but we should point out that congress has given the president and all presidents under the u.s. constitution broad authority when it comes to national emergencies to two to act in this matter what congress hasn't done is given the president the power to spend the money as he sees fit congress it's a co-equal branch of government with the white house has always been in control of what's called the public purse so this is where the debate comes the president has the power to declare a national emergency in fact there have been serves about sixty that have been declared since one thousand nine hundred eighty nine i believe thirty one are still in place from all of the presidents but the question becomes whether or not the
11:55 pm
president is using these powers in the right way many would argue that this is different this time because he is accessing funds in order to deliver on a campaign promise which many people debate is not a national emergency so what are americans saying about all this secondly obviously didn't he didn't have public opinion on his side during the thirty five days of the u.s. government shutdown what what what is what's the u.s. public saying about this expected decision to declare a national emergency over this border. well the american public is pretty consistently divided on this issue well there were many even conservatives that did not support donald trump shutting down the government over this issue this issue in and of itself has americans very divided there are certainly not millions of americans that believe that illegal immigration is a problem they elected donald trump to come into this white house to address what
11:56 pm
twenty years of presidents and congress has not addressed so when it comes to this issue there is going to be support for the president taking this course of action but there are many that are nervous about this sort of creeping imperial power as sort of the broader use of power by the white house that is an issue that could have conservatives rethinking how this proceeds so when it comes to american reaction those who are on the sort of the left of the political spectrum certainly are very opposed to this but there are also those on the right that are concerned about this because the manner which is proceeding versus going the typical course through congress in order to have this money approved in the standard sort of fashion so again some conservatives support this but are a little bit nervous about how this is going about yeah and as you say there kimberly i think you alluded to this earlier that there are issues of constitutionality around this decision whether whether it is congress or the
11:57 pm
president that has the authority to do this is there a danger particularly for republicans that this might set a precedent if it's successful. so that in the future if there's a democratic president and then that person whoever it may be may use that newfound authority to make the decisions that he wants as well. yes that is the argument but you know you could make that argument and fact that argument was used under barack obama there were a lot of people that were very critical of his use with regard to the health care act with regard to the issue of protecting those that have been brought to the united states illegally and we've also seen this under george w. bush as well following the september eleventh attacks there has been repeated accusation against increasing number of presidents that they are abusing the powers
11:58 pm
of the office that when they can't work with congress because the elections have given that check and balance that they try to circumvent what we've seen in those cases up to this point is the courts for the most part slapping down those efforts or are trying to help them in some way so we could see that again of course if this makes this all the way to the supreme court we've had a change in the supreme court donald trump has been able to appoint two people to the supreme court so this is going to be a different case and a different test of the case given the fact that there is now a new makeup on the supreme court that is more conservative we'll have to see there's a lot of out answered questions in all of this but what we can tell you is that the white house is vigorously defending their actions to act in this matter the white house has been set since september maybe even august through mick mulvaney the former director of budget now the chief of staff he has not only been looking for different pots of money that could be accessed these are funds that have already
11:59 pm
been accessor approved by congress but he's also been working with the legal team to defend the use of this money so what we know for now is that there are going to be about three different buckets where this money is going to come from there's going to be about six hundred million in terms of funds coming from the seizures of law enforcement it's called forfeiture funds from the u.s. treasury there's going to be a two point five billion. counter-drug funds from the department of defense and another three point five billion in military construction funds through the department of defense this all comes together to lower than the five point seven billion that donald trump was looking for from congress originally but this is what we understand the white house has carved out what we are now waiting for the president to announce officially all right kimberly for the moment thanks very much kimberly how could live for us there in washington outside the white house we are expecting to hear from president trump in the rose garden at any moment this hour and we will of course go to that as soon as it happens one of course here from you
