Zamfara govt pledges special consideration for women, children

The Zamfara State Commissioner for Women, Children and Social Development Affairs, Dr. Nafisa Muhammad Maradun has charged women in the state to design perfect paths for their children through decent upbringings to avoid joining notorious gangs.

The Commissioner said the women have the capacity to build or destroy the future of their children, pointing out that the way and manner women bring up their children will definitely reflect on their lives.

She advised them to apply discipline as a corrective measure in their children’s upbringings, stressing that the government was mindful of the roles played by women in nation building.

She assured that the state government will give special consideration to women and children for social and economic development due to the persisting socioeconomic hardship.

The Commissioner made the assertions on Friday, during the weekly preaching session for women at the ministry in Gusau, stressing that no responsible government will treat the development of women and children with a mere wave of hand.

“The present government has made adequate arrangements for women and children in the state so they can enjoy the dividends of democracy”, she said.
