The Speaker, Kwara State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Salihu Danladi has declared that the womenfolk deserve everyday celebration for the significant roles played by them in family moulding and nation-building.
This was contained in a statement issued in Ilorin, Sunday, by his Special Assistant Media, Ibrahim Sheriff.
The statement stated that, “I join the world in celebrating our mothers on the occasion of International Women’s Day 2020. A woman is a hero of every man, through whom we came to life, by whom we were nurtured & to whom we shoulder the burden of home building, their significance in nation-building cannot also be overemphasized”
“I am particularly proud to be part of the administration that halted back-staging of the womenfolk in governance, appreciating their power and potentials in contributing to the socio-economic development of any society.”
Danladi, therefore, reiterated the commitment of the 9th Kwara legislature to continue supporting programs and policies that stimulate women’s inclusion, empowerment, and development, stressing that any form of gender-based stereotyping will not be encouraged in the Assembly under his stewardship.
