"He for She" Award: Towoju Congratulates Governor AbdulRazaq


The Kwara State Commissioner for Communications, Hon. Olabode George Towoju, has congratulated the Governor of Kwara State, Mallam AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, on the occasion of the " HE for SHE " Award presented to the Governor by the Women Wing of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in recognition of his role in promoting women inclusion and empowerment in Nigeria.
In a statement, the Press Secretary of the Ministry, Ayobami Ashaolu, quoted the Commissioner to have described the award as "not coming as a surprise because the Governor is the first Governor in all 36 states to nominate a female majority cabinet and deliberately mainstream gender inclusion in the state.   
"Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq is for everybody. There is nothing like gender insensitivity in his dictionary. This is even evident in the recent legislation which made it binding and necessary that there must be, at least, 35 per cent  women participation in the cabinet and public sector appointments. 
" Women need not shy away from politics. The Governor needs your fresh ideas and intellect. He does not play with the issue of women at all and so this award is not surprising at all, if anything, I am glad that this pace-setting act of his, is being acknowledged and appreciated, not just in Nigeria, but also worldwide as the Vice President of Liberia, Dr. Jewel Taylor and a host of dignitaries were there to hail our Governor, making our dear state, Kwara, to, again, be on the radar positively," Towoju added. 

The Commissioner further wished the governor greater landmark victories and called on women to utilize their God-given intelligence so that Kwara State can become better for all.
