#2019Debate: Feminists On Twitter Go Hard At Fela Durotoye For Describing His Running Mate As A “beautiful And Delectable” Lady

Some feminists on Twitter are having a field day as they take a serious swipe at Presidential aspirant, Fela Durotoye who featured in the 2019 Presidential debate on Saturday where he described his running mate, Khadijah Abdullahi-Iya as a “beautiful and delectable” lady.

Durotoye who was asked a question on gender inclusivity at the debate, described his running mate, Khadijah Abdullahi-Iya as a “beautiful and delectable” lady, a description that ash been described by many as misogynistic.

Nigerian rapper, M.I Abaga was among the first set of people to draw attention to the comment, as he tweeted; ‘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‘.

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. #Presidentialdebate2019

So d moderator asked a question on gender inclusivity and Fela Durotoye decided to tell us his running mate is “beautiful and delectable.” The irony.
A televised Presidential debate and those were his first words? Did d man think he was introducing some edible flower on the menu?

@TheFavoredWoman

Fela struggles to remember his running mate’s name?

And what’s with the “beautiful and delectable” adjective?

How does having a female running mate translate into policy is for the girl child?
