Some women in Nigeria are stepping up to the challenge as the country’s presidential election and a number of governorship elections get closer.

Sharing a campaign poster on her Instagram page, she wrote: “To serve and to honor in loyalty and in truth to Akwa Ibom and Nigeria. So help me God….”
This bold step marks a positive change to the under-representation of women in Nigerian politics as some of her colleagues, Funke Akindele and Tonto Dikeh recently announced their political aspirations.
