Nigeria’s House of Representatives has passed a bill allowing married women to choose their state of origin.

Legal Expert and Women’s Right Activist, Abiade Olawanle said the move is significant since it paves the way for many more women to take up leadership roles in local politics.

Previously, women were barred from standing for political office in their state of origin if they move to live in their husband’s state.

Mrs. Abiade said she had personally missed out on opportunities in her father’s state because of marriage.
