Former United States President Barack Obama has aired a strong statement about women being great leaders.
KAMI learned that for the former US President, women are “pretty indisputably” better than men.
In a report by BBC News (authored by Saira Asher), Obama said that the world would have a significant change if only every nation was led by women.
"Now women, I just want you to know; you are not perfect, but what I can say pretty indisputably is that you're better than us [men],” Obama said at a private event in Singapore.
"I'm absolutely confident that for two years if every nation on earth was run by women, you would see significant improvement across the board on just about everything... living standards and outcomes,” he said.
As reported by CNN International, Obama explained that he would opt not to take another leadership role.
"If you look at the world and look at the problems, it's usually old people, usually old men, not getting out of the way," Obama said.
"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,” he continued.
Born on August 4, 1961, Barack Hussein Obama II served as the 44th President of the United States from 2009 to 2017. He was the first African American to ever to assume the post. His wife is former First Lady Michelle Obama.
