A video of a member of Nigerian House of Representatives Gudaji Kazaure representing Kazaure/Roni/Gwiwa/Yankwashi Federal Constituency of Jigawa State, talking about women in politics surfaced is stirring up lots of reactions.

The clip is from the House of Representatives Plenary which held yesterday during the International Women’s Day and touched on issues concerning Women’s affairs.

During the session, Gudaji who represents Kazaure/Roni/Gwiwa/Yankwashi constituency argued that although women are very important and need opportunities in politics and entrepreneurship, it should be limited.

According to him:

What I fear is, the women control the men at home, if you give them too much opportunity outside (politics) and at home, they will capture everything.

If you give them more chance, one day they will overthrow us.
