No fewer than 3000 women have benefited from the initiative of Mrs Betty Akeredolu, wife of the Ondo state program for women in the state.
The program ‘FOWOSO’ is aimed at assisting people to discover their hidden talents and train them in some handy works. The program has served as an empowerment outreach in making lives better across the 18 local governments’ area of the state.
The women could not hold back their joy in appreciating the good gesture of Mrs Akeredolu over their well being. Akeredolu commenced the online registration of market women to ensure that they benefit from the dividends of governance in the state.
She began the registration exercise on Saturday at Agagu market in Akure South and Ogbese in Akure North council areas of the state.
She said market women were crucial to the socio-economic development of the society, adding that her visit to the markets was on how the present administration could make life more meaningful to the women.
