"These men apply for jobs not because they are good, sometimes they dont even know what they are applying for. They mostly apply for these jobs cos they are men and they can. When women apply for job, most of the times, they do because they know for sure they can do the job and this is why it is sad.

"This is what patriarchy does to your mentality, it screws it up. It curbs your progress, it stops you from moving forward. Nigerian women, your place is in the office making money and not in the kitchen making dinner. Thanks."
