- Present her grand amazon award
Women Journalists in the country under the auspices of the Nigerian Association of Women Journalists ( NAWOJ), have presented the Grand Amazon Award to the wife of Ondo State governor, Arabinrin Betty-Anyanwu.
It was in recognition of her advocacy programmes aimed at promoting and empowering women in the society and her quest to pursue a gender-balanced society.
NAWOJ national President, Mrs. Ifeyinwa Omowole had described the Governor’s wife as a model for women, in view of her role in uplifting the lot of women in the state.
Mrs Akeredolu, dedicated the award to all women who have worked and are still working selflessly for the emancipation of the women folk.
Speaking at the dinner and award night organised by NAWOJ as part of activities to mark the association’s 30th anniversary at Radio House Garki Abuja, she said the honour done her would serve as an extra nudge for her not to never give up on her passion to see a gender balanced society.
While stating that her activities were not targeted at self recognition, she pledged to pursue her chosen cause of gender equality doggedly, stressing the need for women to be empowered with skills in order to achieve a gender balanced society.
