According to Oculi, “There are many enemies at the gates, but I believe a female candidate can emerge victorious if she has the right strategy and support”.
The female candidates who contested the elections were highly competent and experienced, and their campaigns were well-received by the Nigerian people. Despite not making it through to the final round, they have set a precedent and raised the bar for future female candidates. In light of this, many Nigerians have expressed their desire to see a female candidate win the presidential elections in the next round scheduled for 2027.
