Nigeria female presidential aspirant, Eunice Atuejide has earned the ire of social media users after she objected to being called a feminist and said it makes her want to puke.
The 39-year-old legal practitioner who founded National Interest Party, NIP, said she believes in an equal and fair Nigeria for all but said she can never be a feminist.
It all started when she went online to complain about gender inequality after male presidential candidates had a consultative meeting on Tuesday, July 31, 2018, and left the female aspirants out.
She said what Fela Durotoye and other male presidential aspirants did was gender inequality, then in the same breath said she is not a feminist and can never be, thereby contradicting herself.
Her words made her lose the support of social media users who told her they wouldn’t vote for her since she couldn’t educate herself on what feminism means. They reminded her that feminism is the same thing as gender equality and that she is able to run for president only because feminists fought and paved the way for women to be represented, else she would have been forced to stay at home to take care of her husband and five kids.
