Nigeria's finance minister, Kemi Adeosun has urged women and Nigerians to get involved in politics.

Adeosun made this known at the KICC facilitated wealth creation platform which held on Saturday, November 12, 2016 in Lagos.

In her presentation at the event, Adeosun encouraged Nigerians, most especially women, to get involved in the process of changing Nigeria.

She said: "You can't just sit there or shy away from the process, you have to get involved. I remember when I was selected to perform as a commissioner in Ogun state, I tried shying away from it but I summoned courage and decided to join part of the change process."

Continuing she said: "It is not just castigating and blaming others, you need to join the process and make that change you so desire. You can start by joining a political party, it might be APC or any other party but make the move to getting involved and making an impact on the country."
