KOWA Party’s Female Presidential Candidate Remi Sonaiya Promises All-Inclusive Government if Elected

Remi-Sonaiya-PresidentThe presidential candidate of the KOWA Party, Prof. Oluremi Sonaiya, on Thursday said that she would give equal opportunity to all Nigerians to contribute to national development, if elected.

At a news conference in Lagos, Sonaiya said that her administration would ensure that all sections of the population would enjoy dividends of democracy.

“A KOWA government will seek to be all-inclusive, working to ensure that no section of the population feels excluded.

“Policies will be put into place to ensure that buildings in all public places (banks, schools, business and leisure places, as well as places of worship) are accessible by wheelchair.

“Braille and sign languages will be mainstreamed into public communication activities,” Sonaiya said.

She further said that she would ensure a ‘living’ pension for the aged and people living in the very low income bracket.

The presidential candidate promised that her administration would uphold and defend the dignity of all human beings.

She said that her policies and programmes would take gender perspectives into consideration, adding that women must be protected by law from all forms of exploitation and socio-cultural practices which robbed them of dignity.

She promised to also provide women with all they would need to carry pregnancy safely and deliver healthy babies.
“Maternal maternity must be drastically reduced,’’ she said.

Sonaiya said that her administration would protect Nigerian children against danger and diseases, adding that all necessary immunisation would be provided.
She pledged to protect all children from exploitation through increased support to relevant agencies.

“A KOWA government will work to ensure that no Nigerian child is trafficked, that years of free, mandatory schooling are adhered to and that all our children are given the opportunity of a safe and happy childhood.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.

    I wish all Nigerian women would vote for this woman, if for nothing else to shake up things. It is high time we started canvassing for a female president in Nigeria. Secondly isn’t it upsetting that in a country of 170m Nigerians. A country filled with Smart and honest people, the biggest political parties gave us GMB or GEJ as options. Yes they may both have traits that are good but are they really the best options we could have had at this point? We need to start changing the political scenery and narrative, otherwise in 2019 we will be stuck with equally poor options

    Such a nice woman, she would have been better served running for a smaller post. Lets step a little into the alt-reality world where she wins, how will she sway a senate that that will be dominated by APC and PDP?? Does she really think they’ll pass all these her “people-centric” policies?? I also see a lot of nice policies, very heart-warming stuff, but no economic and social policies, where will the money for all these policies come from?. She would make an excellent House of Reps member not a Governor or President.

      My thoughts exactly! For the negotiations that go into passing policy, one needs numbers and leverage (amongst other things).
      In addition, is there any state that has a KOWA party person in their assembly? I have heard of national, regional, state or district parties. Into which category does KOWA put itself? As much as I am drawn to her, I think all the other parties fielding presidential candidates are just background noise.
      Personally, I think our ideological political space in Nigeria can only support 5 or 6 parties. Maybe as our democracy matures we can be able to divide the idealogical space further.

    In my opinion, describing her as a candidate would have been enough and not “female candidate” . Becasue Jonathan and Buhari are just camdidates and not “male candidates”

      ……..but she is a female candidate. =O
      Let’s not always find fault in everything

      And they are male candidates so from henceforth, let’s call them as such. “Female candidate” rather than “candidate” forces that gender in a way that it doesn’t do for the male candidates.

    If she doesn’t win, I would love to see her remain in politics. Run for governor, rep, senator, local chairman, something.

    She would have had my vote if she had raised more dust before now, made more impact nation wide then I would have voted knowing she was competent not because of her gender….ifshe honestly wants to make a difference I hope she’s retained as a minister or governor so she can start from somewhere and begin to make a difference

    When I see this woman, I just feel happy, for a start and to kick back at all barbaric injustice committed against women under noses of past administrations greedily still wanting to rule, let all enfranchised female vote for her, let all men vote for her because she is coming out to do what most of them cowered and shied away from doing, this Professor Oluremi is a “Strong Man” I will vote for her a million times over. I will!!!
