Wife of Taraba State Governor, Barr. Anna Darius Ishaku has met with DDI Women Leaders from the 16 Local Government Areas and YANGTU Special Development Area to strategise on ways to move the office forward.
While addressing the women at the Hope Afresh Foundation office in Jalingo, the wife of the Governor urged the women to identify areas of challenges for their various offices as well as raise issues that need Government attention.
While commending their resilience in the face of neglect, she further assured them of the Foundation’s support, stressing that henceforth, the women will be carried along in its activities.
Earlier in her speech, the Secretary of the DDI Women Leaders, Mrs. Hajara Pajo who described the Governor’s wife as a perfect role model with a mother’s heart, commended her passion for the less privileged in the State, stressing that they are witnesses to her visit to Sunkuru and the impact made by that visit.
According to her, despite the challenges inherited by the administration, her Excellency’s desire to change things in the State has always soared higher as she has put smiles on various faces, adding that, the level of female appointments in the State has also taken a new turn which they believe is as a result of her support.
She however decried the low-level of attention being given to DDI offices at the grassroots stressing that, while the Headquarters is active, those in the Local Government Areas are almost extinct as they are not carried along in activities going on the State.
Mrs. Pajo therefore called on the Governor’s wife to explore avenues where she can restore the glory of DDI offices at the grassroots as well as involve DDI women and men in her activities and the State.
Various women also spoke concerning the state of affairs at their offices pleading that necessary actions be taken.
