“I am very sad about the outcome of the elections; we women have been robbed again,” Mrs. Alhassan told the News Agency of Nigeria on Wednesday in Jos.

Mrs. Clinton, former U. S. Secretary of State, who contested on the ticket of the Democratic Party, lost the Tuesday race to her Republican rival, Donald Trump.

She has since called to congratulate the winner and also wish him well.

Mrs. Alhassan expressed optimism that the womenfolk would be luckier next time in their bid for equal opportunities to serve humanity.

Speaking in the same vein, Larai Akawu, a Jos-based activist, expressed shock at the loss which she said was not expected.

“Hilary Clinton was doing well and the polls predicted that victory will go her way.

“Some of us here were already planning to celebrate the grand arrival of the women folk as leaders at the global stage before we got the shock of our lives,” she stated.

Ms. Akawu, however, urged women not to be discouraged by the setback, saying that there was always another chance.

“Clinton came so close to winning; it means there is great hope that we shall be there in the near future,” she said.

  2. Mama Taraba should focus on Nigeria's numerous problems and leave the Americans to determine their own fate
    The Americans have spoken through their ballot papers and mana Taraba's mourning in Nigeria is absolutely of no relevance
