African Union Development Agency-New Partnership for Africa’s Development (AUDA-NEPAD), has congratulated Nigerian women for their immense contributions to societal growth.
AUDA-NEPAD’s National Coordinator, Ms Gloria Akobundu, congratulated the womenfolk in a statement by her media Assistant, Mr Abolade Ogundimu, on Monday in Abuja, as the world celebrates Women’s Day.
The Women’s Day is celebrated on every March 8, to appreciate the values, virtues, and the efforts of women in the society.
AUDA-NEPAD’s boss paid glowing tribute, admiration, respect and gratitude to Nigerian women, their African and global counterparts for the great efforts exhumed beyond their limitations in establishing a more equal future for their societies.
Akobundu, however, used the occasion to reflect on contributions of women in the likes of Hajia Aisha Buhari, Dame Pauline Tallen, Minister of Women Affairs, Hajia Amina Mohammed, Deputy Secretary-General, UN, and other women serving in various capacities in the country and beyond.
She cautioned the society against underestimating women’s values.
According to Akobundu, women have always been part of successes achieved by humanity, having given birth and nurtured both men and women.”
