Female Body Hails Makinde For Appointing First Woman SSG In 43 Yrs.


A female body, Women In Politics Forum has congratulated the Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde over the appointment of Mrs Olubamiwo Adeosun, as the first female Secretary to the Oyo state government.

In a congratulatory message to the governor and people of the state, signed by the body’s President, Ebere Nfendu and made available to Thepage, the nongovernmental, multi-party forum for women in Politics, WIPF expressed its “hearty congratulations” to Governor Makinde on his  election as governor of Oyo State and “most profoundly the appointment of a woman – MRS. OLUBAMIWO ADEOSUN as the first female Secretary to the State Government in the 43-year-old pacesetter state of Oyo.”

Hailing the governor for the appointment of Adeosun, the Forum said “indeed, Nigerian Women celebrate you and recognize this act as a giant stride towards bridging the gap in the marginalization of women in politics and decision making in Nigeria”

Like Oliver Twist, the group in its message wants the governor   to make its administration  a door for more inclusion and participation of women in Oyo State politics and governance.

While assuring the governor of its support, the Forum also appealed to  Makinde to ” be our champion by lending a voice to your esteemed colleagues across States of the federation to implement the 35% affirmative Action policy to engender a holistic development of our dear nation, Nigeria”
