The Speaker, Kwara state House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Salihu Yakubu Danladi has declared the womenfolk deserve every day celebration for the significant roles played in family moulding and nation building.
In a statement issued in Ilorin, Sunday, by his Special Assistant Media, Ibrahim Sheriff, Danladi said “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 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 women folks in governance, appreciating their power and potentials in contributing to socio-economic development of any society”, he said.
The Speaker therefore reiterates the commitment of the 9th Kwara legislature to continue supporting programs and policies that stimulates women inclusion, empowerment and development, stressing that any form of gender based stereotyping will not be encouraged by the Assembly under his stewardship.
