Hajiya Aisha said “women in the civil service have grater role to play in the fight against the discrimination the female folks faced in the hands of men within the civil service.”

The Zamfara First Lady added that until women in the civil service unite together to fight a common front in the discrimination against women, Nigerian women particularly in northern Nigeria will face difficulty in occupaying high positions in the civil service.

The First Lady commended the effort of her husband in admitting more women into his cabinet as well as appointing other women to various positions in the state civil service.

She urged husbands to allow their educated wives to take appointments in the civil service, so as to contribute their quarter in the development of Zamfara state.
