By Chukwudi Asoya

Women  in any society have been described as critical agents for nation building.

The Delta State Governor, Senator (Dr) Ifeanyi Okowa, gave the charge recently at the 2021 International Women’s Day celebration in Asaba.

The Governor who was represented by the Special Adviser on SERVICOM and Labour Relations, Comrade Mike Okeme, said that  women had a greater role to play in the growth of not only their individual homes but the state and the nation at large.

He noted that the theme of the  2021 Women Day Celebration anchored in  “Women in  Leadership Towards Achieving Equal Opportunities for All in COVID-19 world: The Nigeria situation” was apt and necessary.
Comrade Okeme recalled that   the world all over was facing the COVID-19 issue.

He, however, urged them to always collaborate with other stakeholders with a view to ensuring that women continue to take their pride of place in the scheme of things.
