In the forthcoming 2015 presidential election in Nigeria, only one female candidate will be contesting for the presidency, according to the list of presidential candidates released by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).


Prof. Comfort Oluremi Sonaiya, a former lecturer at the Department of Foreign Languages at the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State, is the only candidate representing the female gender among the male-dominated candidates.

Sonaiya will be contesting under the umbrella of KOWA party, alongside running mate, Saidu Bobboi.

In 2008, she was named an International Ambassador Scientist of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, and until recently, Sonaiya was the National Public Relations Officer of KOWA Party.

KOWA was registered as a political party on July 16, 2009, by a group of Nigerian Civil Society, activists, professionals and technocrats.

The KOWA party claims to be different from other political parties. Its website says: “We are mostly political activists, professionals and politicians who did not find a level playing ground in the God-father-dominated Political Parties. This means that we are not your typical, conventional, rotten politicians. We are different.”
