Omawumi Reveals Who She Would Have Voted For In Presidential Election

Nigerian Singer Omawumi has revealed who she would have voted for in the forthcoming presidential election.

Omawumi
told Vanguard newspaper that former presidential candidate of the ACPN,
Obiageli Ezekwesili would have been her choice if she did not pull out
of the race weeks ago. She said;
“She (Ezekwesili) was a former minister, she has always been involved and she always speaks out when things go wrong.

She
was the major propaganda of the ‘Bring back our girls’ campaign; so
it’s not because she is a woman. It’s because I feel that of all of them
contesting for presidency, she is the best person for the job.

But that’s my opinion, everybody is entitled to one”
Omawumi
also added that Ezekwesili proved her qualification for the job at the
presidential debate where she stated her plans for the country.
Speaking on women participation in politics, Omawumi said,

“I think that as women, with active participation and inspiring other young women we can contribute to the growth of the nation.

That
is exactly what is happening now; when women sit down together, what
they talk about is no longer domestic issues. What we talk about is why
politicians think they can misbehave and not be held accountable.

When
women are being more interested in what is going on and then we can
continue to spread the conversation. The more it spreads the more women
we will find to be interested in knowing and being a part of the
movement. It’s not always easy but we will get there”.
