POLITICS: Meet Prof. Sonaiya, The Only Female Presidential Aspirant In The 2015 Nigeria Election

Interestingly, some of the other nine candidates have come to the contest with impressive resumes.One of such candidates is Sonaiya, 59, the only woman in the contest. She is a professor of French and Applied Linguistics and a former lecturer at the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State. In 2008, Sonaiya was named an International Ambassador Scientist of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, the first Nigerian to be appointed in the position she occupied between 2008 and 2014.
Until recently, she was the National Public Relations Officer of her party.

KOWA was registered as a political party on July 16, 2009, by a group of Nigerian civil society activists, professionals and technocrats.

Sonaiya was a blogger for NEXT Newspaper until it stopped publishing and she is presently a columnist with The Niche, a Nigerian weekly newspaper. She is a Christian, who described herself as a true representative of the people.

“I am running based on the strong conviction that somebody needed to do this – I mean somebody ordinary, a true representative of the people,” she said in her mission statement.

If Sonaiya wins the election, she will become the first Nigerian female President.

wat is the full meaning of kowa

We'll see what happens. Nigerian woman would not even vote for her. Jealousy would kill most of them and they'll say instead for her to be attending to her family she's playing politics. NOTE: Politics/Democracy has never been a way to properly represent the people but just a way to make them cede their power to a few individuals.

@jesse: what do u think of SARAH JUBRIL getting only one vote when she contested as president in Nigeria. does it mean she dosen't have even brothers, relations and friends to at least vote for her. do you see a woman becoming president in Nigeria in the 20 years

Jesse Osayande Vucinic Ehiagwina

@ Endy. Jibril had delegates that followed her there promising votes. Even women were there sef but like I said its even harder for women to vote for their kin that for men to. 20 years is too small. I'd even say 50.

This is Naija, it doesn't work that way
