“Though the number of women in politics and governance, both at the state and national levels, falls short of our expectation, we are determined to encourage our fellow women, who are either elected or appointed, to serve as torch bearers to others.

“It is our sincere hope that the award will spur them to work assiduously to change the narrative in the next political dispensation,” she said.
