Prince Abdulkareem calls for support of Ododo’s inclusive vision in the 2023 Kogi election.
The All Progressives Congress APC Gubernatorial Flagbearer for the 2023 elections, Alhaji Ahmed Usman Ododo, has made a recent pledge that deserves our attention. His promise to prioritize gender inclusiveness in governance is a praiseworthy accomplishment that warrants our full support. We will delve deeper into the significance of this commitment and its potential impact on society.
As we all know, women play a critical role in our society and should be given equal opportunities to participate in decision-making processes that affect their lives. Unfortunately, gender discrimination and other barriers hinder their full participation in socioeconomic activities, leading to a loss of talent and potential.
Alhaji Ahmad Ododo recognizes this challenge and has pledged to close the gender gap by creating an enabling environment for women to participate fully in all sectors of the economy. This commitment includes prioritizing education for girls and women, ensuring that they have access to quality education and are not hindered by sociocultural barriers.
Additionally, his administration will provide healthcare services that cater to the unique needs of women and promote women’s entrepreneurship and economic empowerment. These policies, strategies, and actions will address the root causes of gender inequality and promote gender mainstreaming in all policies and programs.
I call upon all stakeholders to support Ahmad Ododo’s vision for a better and more prosperous Kogi State that values and harnesses the potential of women. Together, we can build a society that promotes gender inclusiveness and sustainable development. Prince Abdulkareem Onyekehi concludes.
