The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara has identified lack of knowledge on the workings of government as the main reasons for the low percentage of women vying for elective positions in politics.
 
Speaker Dogara made this known on Wednesday at a retreat for wives of members of the House of Representatives held in Abuja. 
 
He said the essence was to sensitise women on democratic processes, raise awareness and broaden their understanding on the structure of governance.
