Folorunsho Alakija calls on women to go into politics as they are not permanently meant for the kitchen.

The business tycoon and richest woman of black women in the world said this at the 2nd day of the three-day Excellent In Leadership Conference tagged: Maximize Your Influence” at Daystar Christian Centre church auditorium in Oregun,Lagos.

In an exclusive interview with her,she said,

“I would not go into politics and I am not interested in it except God says I should.Let us see a female president in America first.Though it is not a major determinant to our own but I don’t see any reason why we should not have a female president.We would like to see female governors too not just deputy governors.What God has given a woman is not to put her in the kitchen permanently but for her to make use of her influence.”

She added that,”I gave my life to Christ when I was 40 years and I regret that I didn’t find God earlier.People should be ready to pay the price for success.A lot of people live above their means and don’t cut their cloth according to their material.Especially women that do Aso Ebi affairs.I use to do it but my husband specifically asked while courting that what do I gain from it.Ever since then I prefer colour to cloth.We have allowed too many people to get away with evil without paying the price for what they have done. I am not advocating for this present government but when a nation gets brought down to its kneel then look inward for the problem”.

Still speaking at the event, Pastor Agu Irukwu of Jesus House London said,”people should not separate their present daily life from their activities in church.We can learn from the structures of other countries to put things right in our country.Unfortunately Nigeria struggle with two deep things and they are tribal factors and religious divide.Until those are dealt with,its always going to be a challenge.”

In addition,Pastor Kyula from Kenya said,”one group that has solutions to Africa’s problem is the church.We are to give solutions to problems of the world.There is so much room for growth. Just like Google has been built, Uber built its business on Google map.Nobody cares about the country you came from just make an impact.

“You don’t judge anti corruption effort by the number of people arrested but how effective is all the efforts.If you are ignorant about the use of media,you cannot be influential”,Pastor Jude said.
