She further urged them to continue being a light of motivation, hope and faith for many in their respective fields.
“This is just a token from me to you saying thank you very much for all that you have and still continues to do and to encouraged you to continue your efforts as it is through the various contributions being made by you that has helped in boosting and enhancing this region,” the Regional Chairman told the honourees.
She told those gathered that the contributions made by the ten women are enormous, significant and goes beyond the call of duty, adding that she firmly believes that recognising persons when they are alive would positively boost the moral of them and those that emulate them. “We shouldn’t wait by until these champion women are dead before recognising their contributions, service and efforts in the region because what is the purpose of the award when they are dead,” she asked rhetorically.
