The former lawmaker, who is the National Secretary of the Nigerian League of Women Voters, noted that the participation of women in the 2019 general elections was low.
She said the number was not good enough for the development of democracy in Nigeria.
Monu-Olarewaju said the United Nations was interested in assisting Nigerian women to grow politically but women needed to be active and enthusiastic about it.
“Women should start preparing for the 2023 elections in earnest and they should take advantage of the UN package to explore their potential in politics, using their numerical strength as an edge,’’ she said.
The former lawmaker who was also a one-time Commissioner for Commerce and Industry in the state, said that women, particularly in Delta, should endeavour to mobilise fully for the 2023 elections.
