Someone just called his running mate for the presidency of a country.. called his female running mate ‘beautiful and delectable‘ as the first words to describe her… Smh

Just watched Fela Durotoye call his female vice presidential candidate “beautiful and delectable” during a presidential debate. These men can not help themselves. When your women’s rights agenda is zilch and you pick a female running mate as a PR stunt, this is the result. Same person who wants to use alumni as a driver for university funding. The ghetto.

So @feladurotoye just called his running mate ‘beautiful and delectable’;VERY INAPPROPRIATE. Obviously the only thing she has to offer is her beauty and sex appeal and right on the subject of the marginalization of the girl-child/ women in the country.

  1. Am a lady, although that was a complinent that wasnt needed. His name should not be dragged over the mud. After all unlike sone of his candidates he came for the debate

  2. Free him o. That’s what is thinks and wishes to call her. If you are the one nko? Please let’s focus on important issues

  3. Wow. But why would he go that far even if he couldn’t mean it? Hmm..see what it’d dragged him into.

  5. All these dragging are not necessary at all.When you look at the lady, you will first see her beauty before her intellectual and other qualities.They should let him be

  6. Why are people so negative minded, an that’s were the problem always start, cause people focuses so much on the little black spot

  7. As a politician you must learn the appropriate word to describe a lady when asked questions regarding gender issues

  8. The fact that one beautiful doesn’t have any thing to do with whether one will emerge or not

  9. People like making sense in something that doesn’t make sense,what’s the big deal in what he called that woman now.

  10. We Nigerians always making issues out of nothing what is the big deal he can describe her however he thinks fit her. What we should be looking at is what he can offer and the content of his speech

  11. Can you see one of the disadvantages of the Presidential debate. People will just be twisting whatever they say. I don’t see anything bad in what he says but can you see the peoples reaction?

  12. They all have nothing to offer, wat does beauty have to do in governance, u just need someone to fuck

  13. I don’t see anything bad in that.
    People should just let them be.
    Many of those people reading meaning to his world can’t stand out to do the debate

  14. I am sure he thought he was giving her credit. When will a woman be admired for her mind and her mind alone?

  15. Honestly, i do not see anything wrong with what he had stated. He was just trying to nice to his running mate before the public. May he should have been careful with his choice of words. Nigerians can twist things alot.
