“The governor plans to also deliver other benefits and opportunities to our women and that is why it is very important to vote for continuity on Saturday.

Mrs Akeredolu highlighted her initiatives which were conceived to enhance the capabilities of women and girls in the state.
According to her, the interventions – Ondowidowscare, FOWOSO empowerment and BEMORE are put in place to ensure that women and girls are not relegated to the background.
The State Coordinator, Aketi Women Group, Princess Bunmi Osadahun, who spoke on behalf of the women, commended the governor and his wife for their commitment to the development of women and girls.
She said the women would vote massively for APC on Oct. 10 because Gov. Akeredolu had performed in all sectors. (NAN)
