The National Commissioner at the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC, Adekunle Ogunmola has expressed worry over the decline of women participation in the electoral process.

Ogunmola said this during a strategic meeting with gender focused Civil Society Organisations on women participation in the 2019 general elections in Enugu.

The national commissioner, represented by the INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner in Enugu, Emeka Ononammadu, said that low participation of women in the electoral process was not a good signal to the growth of democracy in the country.

He also said that political processes needed to begin to respond to issues of women inclusion and empowerment as they constituted 48 per cent of Nigeria’s population.
