Foremost Nigerian novelist, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has criticized those harshly judging former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Dieziani Alison-Madueke alleged to be involved in fraudulent deals while in office because she is a woman.

She said Nigerians wouldn't have been too critical of Diezani if she was a man because stealing money is a norm practised by Nigerian politicians.

She made this clear while speaking at the university of Edinburgh. She said people should wipe out the assumption that men are expected to steal and women should be like angels.

She said: “We shouldn’t assume, that because a person is born a woman, that person is somehow is just one step lower than angel.

“I find it quite dehumanizing for women because what is means is that women cannot be judged on the same terms as men.

“I remember once a politician in Nigerian who was a woman had stolen money which is an exercise most nigerian politicians are very adept at.

“she was pilloride, i remember a jounalist saying and she’s a woman.

“Somehow the assumption was it will be better if she was a man because then Nigerians would not judge her harshly since we expect men to steal.

“I think the idea of women being another specie of angel is bad for both women and men because it makes the standards uneven. I dream of a world in which women are seen as women where women are allowed to be many things.”
