2023: Nigerian women vow to support gender supportive leaders

… Decorate Yahaya Bello as ‘Hero of Women Inclusion’

By Dirisu Yakubu

Ahead of the 2023 general election, Nigerian women have sounded a note of caution to governorship and Presidential hopeful, saying their votes will go the way og those who include women in the scheme of things.

Made up of top entrepreneurs and professionals in diverse fields including media executives, and ace Nollywood actresses, among others, they gathered in their numbers in Abuja on Monday to honour Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State with a distinguished ‘Hero of Women Inclusion Award’ at the grand finale of the Nigerian Women Arise for Nigeria (NIWAFON) awareness campaign.

The women justified the honour done to the Kogi state governor on the premise that “he has surpassed the United Nations’ 35 per cent affirmative action, having also appointed women to strategic positions in his government.”
