Otunba Bamidele Akingboye (OBA), the Leading gubernatorial aspirant of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) continues to show he’s a different breed amongst Nigerian politicians and he would be coming with a different approach to government.
In one of his recent courtesy visits to the 18 LGAs in Ondo State, he reassured the generality of women across the state of his commitment to having 40% of women in his cabinet and appointments if elected Governor of Ondo state.
Speaking with Women leaders at Ilaje LGA of the state, Akingboye eulogized the vast difference in patience and empathy possessed by women when saddled with huge tasks especially those that concern transformation of lives.
Akingboye said “I have traversed so many places in the world and I have seen women turn dreams to reality. I have seen, then believe and support visions to the very end. I have seen women commit to a course of action and never back down. I know the importance of women in nation building.”
Beyond proper representation in government, Women are going to handle positions that are very important to birthing a New Dawn (Igba Otun) in Ondo state.
The business tycoon further promised the enthusiastic Ilaje women that this level of participation does not deter other beautiful programmes readily outlined to benefit mothers exclusively.
Akingboye concluded with the popular saying that “behind every successful man, there is a woman”. In Ondo State we would build a league of great women that our vision and mission to reshape our future may be sustainable”
