Enwoagulu made the remark on Friday in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Nassarawa-Eggon.
NAN reports that Enwoagulu, who represented Nassarawa-Eggon East at the assembly from 2007-2011, was the Minority Leader, then.
She was also the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for Akwanga, Wamba and Nasarawa-Eggon Federal Constituency in the March 28 general election.
“The practice of relegating women to the background when it comes to politics in Nigeria must be checked in order to save the situation from deteriorating.
The former legislator said such issues as tackling domestic violence against women, priority to girl-child education, need to consider more women for political appointments, could only be championed by women.(NAN)
