Gov. Sani Bello receiving APC Women
Niger state Governor Abubakar Sani Bello, has described women as multipliers of wealth, adding that they are naturally gifted by God to nurture whatever is kept under their care.
A statement signed by the Chief Press Secretary (CPS) to Gov. Sani Bello, Mrs. Mary Noel-Berge, said he stated this when he received a women delegation led by the state Woman Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Hajiya Fatima Mustapha, at the Government House, Minna, the state capital.
The governor acknowledged their continuous support to his administration while encouraging them to remain steadfast in the affairs of the party.
He enjoined them to form clusters at the local government and ward levels with the view to engaging women especially those at the grassroots in trade that will liberate them from poverty thereby improving on their standard of living.
The Governor assured them of more government support.
Earlier, Hajiya Fatima Mustapha, explained that the aim of their visit was to re-affirm their support to the Gov. Abubakar Sani Bello-led administration considering the developmental programmes, policies and activities being carried out in the state.
Hajiya Mustapha said though the COVID-19 pandemic is still active in the society, she prayed God to intervene and bring an end to it soon.
The State Woman Leader then appealed to the governor to give women top priority in the distribution of COVID-19 palliatives and more inclusion in his government pointing, out that empowering women equates to empowering an entire family.
