ABU to honour women workers in defence, law, others

Arrangements have been con­cluded by the Faculty of So­cial Science of the Ahmadu Bello University(ABU), Zaria, to honour women who have excelled in their chosen works.
 
The dean of the faculty, Prof. Paul Pindar Izah, said women in profes­sions such as security, defence, law enforcement, judiciary, among oth­ers, would be honoured during a conference slated for June 7, 2017,
 
According to a statement made available to newsmen by the dean, the conference is being organised in collaboration with the International Institute for Security and Gover­nance Studies.
 
He noted that despite the massive contributions of women in various professions, they are hardly identified and celebrated.
 
While listing the major objectives of the maiden conference to include celebrating hard work, diligence, bravery, patriotism and nation build­ing as demonstrated by the female gender, Prof. Izah said it would also bring to the fore great role models.
 
He said, ‘it will additionally help us showcase authentic female role mod­els for our young girls, authentic role models abounds in Nigeria, but they need to be identified, recognized and celebrated”.
 
“it is high time Nigeria give wom­en their rightful place, because any country that relegates 50 per cent of its population is doomed, education of the girl child is paramount, espe­cially in the North.”
 
On his part, Dr David Okoror of the International Institute of Security and Governance studies (IISGS) , who doubles as the director, confer­ence and awards said “the honor awards principally would be for women and organisations in the fol­lowing sectors of security, defence, law enforcement and judiciary.”
