Tinubu’s Govt Will Be Women-Friendly- Shettima

The Vice President-elect, Senator Kashim Shettima, has revealed that the Asiwaju Bola Tinubu-led administration will be women-friendly. He disclosed this at the reading session of a book authored by the former Managing Director of the Nigerian Ports Authority, Hadiza Usman.

Commending the author of the book, Shettima said, “She is an iron lady, I don’t think I have the courage to write such a book. Be that as it may, I am here in solidarity with our sister. We need to show empathy and support for our women. There is a popular saying among the people of Ghana that if you educate a man, you have educated an individual, if you educate a woman, you have educated a nation.”

Speaking further, He said, “Be rest assured that the incoming administration of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu will be gender-friendly. He was the first governor to appoint a female as his deputy; he is also the first person to appoint a woman as a Chief Judge of a state. In the North, I was the first person that had five women as members of the state Executive Council.”

The book which is titled, ‘Stepping on Toes, My Odyssey at the Nigerian Ports Authority,’ details Usman’s experience with the former Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, among other issues while heading the ports as the first woman to occupy that position.

Tinubu and Shettima administration to respect the rule of law

The Vice President-elect also told Nigerians that they should be rest assured that they will observe the rule of law.

Encouraging Nigerians to imbibe a healthy reading culture, Shettima said, “We need to read to know what is happening in the world, our reading culture in this part of the world is poor, people hardly read. People find it easy to spend a fortune to buy Apple wristwatches and so on but hardly do we buy books. We may not be authorities on everything but we should be knowledgeable about everything.”
