Expatiating on his government’s gender friendliness, the Council Boss said; “I acknowledged the sensitive nature of the women folks, being our mothers, sisters and wives. They are special breeds that can not be totally ignored in all ramifications.

“That is why I gave them appointments as supervisory councillors. I appoint them into committees and also, I encouraged them to be active in politics and wherever they found themselves.”

The Council chairman throwing more light said; “Ninety four per cent of beneficiaries in my government sponsored skills acquisition are women.

“During the LGA sports festival, women played vital roles in making the event a huge success.

He appealed to the mothers not to abdicate their responsibilities as symbols of unity and peace ambassadors in the society, adding that their neutral stand on issues, whether family, community or political would go a long way to assuage nerves and heal wounds.
