The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has said that women are more productive and less corrupt than men in Nigeria.

Speaking at the Peoples Townhall organized by Channels Television on Sunday, January 8, Peter Obi noted that women are satisfied with little as compared to their male counterpart.

He said this following a question posed at him by the President of Women in Politics Forum, Ebere Ifendu. During the meeting, she asked what he plans to do about the percentage of women in governance.

Ifendu said: "I want to ask you specifically, what will you be doing to change the status of women in governance."

Responding to the question, Peter Obi said that while he was Governor of Anambra state, women occupied some key positions.

He also promised to bring more women into government should he win the upcoming presidential election.

"I can say it without anything; women are more productive in Nigeria than men any day, any time. I worked with them when I was in the banking industry; they saved the bank.

"I wish our men would do the same thing. And they (women) are less corrupt; they are easily satisfied with little.

"Men will just go on and on, forgetting that it is public money they are taking," Peter Obi said.
