Women in Katsina demand share in governance
Katsina women have decried low involvement and participation in decision making and governance structure in the state, Daily Trust reports.
Speaking at a press conference yesterday, the chairperson of High level Women Advocates, Mariya Abdullahi said this trend needed to be changed to give women the desired space for them to showcase their capabilities.
According to her, government must do the needful by employing more qualified female teachers and providing full sponsorship for qualified females to pursue their education up to university level.
“More aggressive approach by key stakeholders through mobilisation, awareness creation and sensitisation for the integration of out-of-school children is needed also “ she said.
“We are hopeful that the state government will consider the concerns raised and act appropriately for the benefit of the state, education and for posterity” she added.
In her remarks, Lydia Shehu, a resource person,
said women were just asking for an equal opportunity to showcase their potentials .
