President Buhari’s Defense of Appointing Women to Head the Ministry of Finance

…By Jack Sylva for TDPel Media. In a statement made just six days before the end of his administration, President Muhammadu Buhari has offered a justification for his decision to appoint women to lead the Ministry of Finance.


According to Naija News, Kemi Adeosun and Zainab Ahmed were the two women chosen to head the Finance Ministry during Buhari’s eight-year tenure.

The President explained that he appointed women as Finance Ministers with the intention of strategically dissuading individuals, particularly men, who might feel too important to approach a woman for contracts or other favors.

Buhari stated that he deliberately selected women for these positions in order to maintain peace and take advantage of cultural norms prevalent among Nigerians.

President Buhari shared these remarks while inaugurating the new Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) Corporate Headquarters in Abuja on Tuesday.

He expressed, “I deliberately appointed ladies so that it will give me a lot of peace.

I made sure I gave the Ministry of Finance to a lady to exploit the cultural behavior of all Nigerians.”


He further explained, “Once ladies are in charge, people feel too big to go to ladies.

So, I am sure peace will be allowed in the Ministry of Finance where people will go and lobby for their contracts to be paid and so on.
