CHAPTER ONE

BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Gender comprises a range of differences between men and women, extending from the biological to the social. It refers to socially constructed and socially learned behaviors and expectations associated with females and males (Parpart, et al, 2000).

Discrimination against the womenfolk in modern society manifests in many ways. They are relegated to disadvantaged position not only in Nigeria but also in many other countries. Discriminatory practices have grave implications for the well-being of women and the economy. Gender equity could act as a veritable instrument for societal development. Traditional socioeconomic and cultural as well as political structures aid discrimination against women(Azuh, Egharevba and Akunna, 2014).

Women participation in Nigerian politics is crucial to the development of Nigeria and since women constitute a sizeable proportion of the population, neglecting them may mean losing their valuable contribution. Traditional socio-economic and political and cultural structures aid discrimination against women leading to loss of contributions of women to societal development. Raising the status of women through gender equality and empowerment has become vital in the quest towards improvement in living standards and wellbeing of the masses and by extension, transforming the economies to a more stable one. Gender equality is crucial to a meaningful national development. (Azuh, Egharevba and Akunna, 2014). OmonubiMcDonnel (2003:2) Opines: Politically, Nigeria women are negligible and undermined force, with little political involvement. Economically, they constitute the majority of the peasant labour force in the agricultural sector, while most of the others occupy bottom of occupational ladder and continue to be channeled into service and domestic occupations. The consequence of the unequal status between men and women is high level of economics and political powerlessness among women, powerlessness in turn retard development of any level, politically, economically and socially.In Nigeria, there are prevailing concerns such as religious and cultural bias against women participation in politics; Low membership in political parties and party structure; the hostile political environment are not responsive to women needed interest and creates imbalance in the political sphere.

Women who constitute about half of the population have been continuously sidelined in public life to the extent that they never held more than 15% of elective  officescompared to what obtained in other nations of the world, particularly in developed nations. Olurode (2011) noted that Nigeria lags far behind in women political participation index on the African countries saying, “Nigerian women have about the worst representation of 5.9% in the national legislature when compared to most other African countries example Uganda (34.6%), South Africa (43.2%), Ethiopia (27.7%), Cameroon (20%), Niger (12.3%) and DR Congo (8.0%)”.The issue being that women in Nigeria face a lot of odds when they contest against men.

STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

There is a belief that Nigerian politics is meant for men, those who possess all the needed qualities to compete in the fierceenvironment, and those who can withstand the violence. It is generally believed that men have the superiority, strength, competitiveness and self-reliant and are preferred to tussle in political endeavor, whereas, women are considered too passive to engage in politics and governance.Nigeria women are negligible and undermined force, with little political involvement.

Economically, they constitute the majority of the peasant labour force in the agricultural sector, while most of the others occupy bottom of occupational ladder and continue to be channeled into service and domestic occupations.

1.7   LIMITATION OF THE STUDY

The challenge if finance for the general research work will be a challenge during the course of study. Correspondents also might not be able to complete or willing to submit the questionnaires given to them.

However, it is believed that these constraints will be worked on by making the best use of the available materials and spending more than the necessary time in the research work. Therefore, it is strongly believed that despite these constraint, its effect on this research report will be minimal, thus, making the objective and significance of the study achievable.
