Mrs Eunice Ortom Interacts With Benue APC Women Leaders (PHOTOS)

The wife of the Benue State governor, Dr. Mrs. Eunice Ortom today had an interface with all the Zonal Women Leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in all the 23 Local Governments of Benue State.
Speaking earlier, the State Party Chairman, Comrade Abba Yaro welcomed the wife of the governor to the Party Secretariat and also thanked her for always standing by the party with her husband.
Comrade Yaro posited that if it is God's will for the first family to occupy beyond 2019, there would be no vacancy for anyone in Government House other than them to consolidate the good work they are given to with an unequaled passion.
On her part, the Woman Leader, Mrs Dooshima Jirgba, thanked the governor's wife for availing herself for such a warm interaction with them, even as she pledged continual support to the first Lady and her husband.
Speaking separately, the Zonal Women leaders of Zone A, B and C, introduced the Women leaders in their Zones,and also thanked the State First lady for finding time amidst tight schedules to come to the the party's Secretariat. They requested that if all things being equal, the trend should be a monthly affair.
The majority of the women who spoke during the interface, lamented the marginalization of women by their male counterparts in terms of appointments, and called on the First lady to prevail on the male- wing of the party to always carry them along in all the party's endeavours, in order to give them a sense of belonging.
Responding to the showered encomiums and sensitive issues raised, the First lady thanked the women leaders for creating time to come and interact with her.
She stated that even though her job is complementary to that of her husband, as there is no provision for the office of the First lady in the Nigerian Constitution, she would always do her best to ensure that Benue women are not relegated to the background in this administration. She therefore advised women to form cooperative organisations in order to have access to existing and prospective loan schemes.
The Firstlady added that she would forward all their requests to her husband, governor Samuel Ortom. She also called on the educated ones amongst the women to submit their CVs so as to stand a chance in job openings and possible appointments.
Also present at the interactive session were, the State Party Chairman, Comrade Abba Yaro, State Deputy Chairman Prof. Kpamor Orkaa, State Secretary Onov Tughulu, Vice-chairman Zone A, Bar. Vincent Uji, Woman leader, Mrs Dooshima Jirgba and State Treasurer Princes Awuese Torhee.
