Former President of the United States, Barack Obama has started a controversy following his statement during a private event in Singapore.
Obama in his statement stressed that women are indisputably better than men when placed in positions.
In a report by BBC, the Former President said, ”I’m absolutely confident that for two years if every nation on earth was run by women, you would see a significant improvement across the board on just about everything—living standards and outcomes.”
Obama went ahead to also criticized old political leaders, who refused to let go of power even when they don’t have what it takes to solve problems.
“It is important for political leaders to try and remind themselves that you are there to do a job, but you are not there for life, you are not there in order to prop up your own sense of self importance or your own power,” Obama declared.
Since stepping down as President of the United States, Obama and his wife Michelle Obama have devoted their time to the mentoring of young leaders around the world through their foundation.
Recently, the couple were in Kuala Lumpur last week for an Obama Foundation event.
