KWSG maximising potentials of Kwara Women-Towoju

The Kwara State Commissioner for Communications, Hon. Olabode George Towoju, has reiterated the interest of the government in maximising the potentials of the Kwara woman so as to help with the development of the state.

Towoju gave the submission during a familiarization visit to the Kwara State Chapter of the Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ), on Tuesday, which also coincided with the International Women's Day, in Ilorin. 

He stated that Gov. AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq values women and knows their importance to any nation's development. 

" The Gender parity bill was recently passed and this ensures that women have at least a 35% representation in political offices. They can also have more than that, if they desire. The floor is open for them. They are the salt of the earth and they deserve as much chance as the men too," the Commissioner said. 

Talking on the achievements of the government, Towoju pointed out that the governor is a "talk and do" governor who delivers on his promises.

"The government has been working tremendously in different sectors of the State and we can see several road projects are ongoing. 

"The state of our hospitals have also started changing under the administration of Mallam AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq. We have been having renovations, purchase of ultramodern equipment and striving to meet up with international standards.

"The education sector is also benefitting and Governor Abdulrazaq has already paid off the UBEC Funds. Our public schools have started benefitting from it. Recently, learning materials were distributed to our schools, in order to aid better learning for our children," Towoju added. 

Earlier in his remarks, the Chairman of the Kwara State Chapter of the Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ), Abdulateef Ahmed, said that journalists are constantly bridging the gap between the public and the government and they are always at the forefront of information dissemination. 

Ahmed added that journalists are charged with informing, educating and enlightening the public and he assured the Commissioner of the professionalism embedded in journalists in the state, while promising that news will continually be reported without fear or favour.
