I believe she CAN do well for Nigeria. However I do not think OUR male DOMINATED politics will give her a chance. A pity! A womans touch is needed in Nigeria.

IF THE FIRST FEMALE THAT HEADED THE HOUSE OF REP HAD PERFORMED, I THINK WE WOULD HAVE GIVEN THIS ONE A TRIAL.  BUT THE FORMER DID OTHERWISE AND AS A RESULT NOTHING FOR THIS ONE.
