As Nigerian women joined their counterparts across the world to celebrate the 2024 International Women’s Day, IWD, the Senate President, Senator Godswill Akpabio, has assured that the National Assembly under his chairmanship will continue to advocate for their improved welfare.

Akpabio, in a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Eseme Eyiboh, to celebrate the women, said “we are very conscious that failure to invest in women is akin to killing development and destroying a nation”.

While describing them as special breed, who deserve all the respect, he commended their daily struggles, describing them as resilient, industrious, and unwavering.


He said the theme of this year’s celebration: “Invest in Women, Accelerate Progress” was apt because no nation succeeds without investing in women as it is popularly agreed that “train a woman and you train a nation.”

According to him, the campaign theme of the 2024 IWD celebration, “Inspire inclusion” was in tune with the thinking of the 10th Senate, which is working assiduously to enact laws that would increase girl-child enrolment in school, fight against sexual exploitation and generally give what is due to the womenfolk.”

“I wish to use the occasion of this year’s International Women’s Day to proudly celebrate our women- mothers and sisters. On behalf of my family, constituents, the Senate, and the National Assembly of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, I sincerely wish our women a peaceful and fruitful celebration.

“I must say you are the best and I sincerely appreciate you,” he stressed.
