Governor Umo Eno of Akwa Ibom State has assured women of his determination to prepare them for future opportunities.

Eno made the assurance in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Ekerete Udoh in commemoration of the International Women’s Day (IWD) celebration on Friday, March 8.

The governor said he would continue to run a gender-inclusive government as currently reflected in the State Executive Council, the Transition committees, membership of Boards and other Ministerial Departments, among others.

He also lauded the strides Akwa Ibom women have made in accelerating the development of the state.

The statement in parts, “Let me on behalf of the Government and people of Akwa Ibom State congratulate our resourceful women on the occasion of the 2024 International Women’s Day.

“The theme of this year’s celebration: Invest in Women: Accelerate Progress”, couldn’t have been more apt.

“Margaret Thatcher, the late former British Prime Minister illustrated succinctly the role women play when she famously stated that “ if you want something said, ask a man; if you want something done, ask a woman.

“The wonderful women of Akwa Ibom State, have done great things- from managing our homes, making huge strides in both private and public sectors and being in the vanguard of pushing morality in our society.

“One of the critical focal points in my wife, Her Excellency, Pastor Patience Umo Eno’s innovative Project: Golden Initiative for All ( GIFA), is the education of the girl child.

“Investing in the girl child is guaranteed to bear great rewards for our society, as Margaret Thatcher aptly stated. We will continue to support this great effort and prepare our women for the opportunities tomorrow may offer.”
