According to Shuluwa, zoning, rotation and implementation of thirty five percent affirmative were panacea for the political emancipation of women and development.
“Unless and until the menfolk see the need to allowed, encouraged their female counterpart to participate actively in politics, the fight against corruption, vote buying, thuggery killings and other characteristics that bedeviled politics would remain a mirage.”
The retired permanent secretary opined that in involving women in policy making and decisions taking would not only reduce political manipulation, tension but liberalized as well as reduce killings and hatred for one another.
“Families and political associate are often divided along political lines and become permanent enemies because of personal interest.
If zoning and rotation of political offices were allowed and encouraged, political activities would be carried out without rancour,” the aspirant said.
While canvassing for quality representation, Chief Shuluwa promised to evolved legislations that would put an end to political vagabondism, economic growth and religious tolerance among the people.
