LCCI canvasses gender reforms in governance

The Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry has called for critical policy and social reforms that put gender equality and sustainability at the centre of governance, politics, and international affairs.

This was contained in a statement signed on Tuesday by the President of the Chamber, Asiwaju Michael Olawale-Cole.

The statement said women participation at various levels of management had yielded promising results, which calls for more conversation regarding the subject matter of gender parity.

The statement further condemned the decision of both chambers of the National Assembly to reject a “Bill for an Act to Alter the Provisions of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 to Provide for Special Seats for Women at the National and state Houses of Assembly.”
