According to Ekweremadu, “by the provisions of Section 42 of the Constitution, you cannot discriminate against a particular community, ethnic group, place of origin, sex, religion, or political opinion by reason only that he is such a person. In order words, you cannot confer any special political advantage on women under the 1999 Constitution as amended”.

He said to have increase women participation the law must be altered-enforcing 35 percent affirmative action.

“the first step is to amend this Section to provide for an exception and also a special quota for women in line with the 35 per cent Affirmative Action,” he said.
