The founder of Calabar Hospitality House; a capacity development institution, Mrs. Justina Ovat has said that despite there been a lot of women with capacity in Cross River State, men are still dominating the political space.
Ovat who pointed out that the women centered discussions dominating the media was to make up for lost time, also disagreed with reports that it will take 200 years to achieve gender parity at the current pace of activism.
She made this known Sunday in Calabar while speaking as a guest on topical issues radio program; ‘The Dialogue With Agba Jalingo’ which airs live every Sunday on Hit 95.9FM from 6:00PM to 7:00PM.
Mrs. Ovat who is also a female entrepreneur, posited that men will benefit from gender equity as the impact of a developed woman will definitely trickle down to the least member of the family.
