    The Struggle to achieve the 30% affirmative action in the Nigerian Parliament is still a dream and not reality even when it can be achieved.
    The number of female lawmakers have continued to decrease instead of increasing.
    It is time for a deliberate action to be taken to allow women have their place in the society and governance.
    There is need for more advocacy,engagement, campaign and enlightenment.
