Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has donated ₦200 million to the Foundation for Wives of Ondo State Officials (FOWOSO), to assist the association in empowering women.

The Governor, represented by his Head of Service, Mr. Rufus Godwins, announced the donation at the 4th FOWOSO Summit held in Akure, the Ondo State Capital.

Wike said the money was to encourage gender advocates to mobilize the womenfolk across Nigeria to request the National Assembly to revisit the four gender equality bills rejected during the recent alteration process of the Nigerian Constitution.

He urged women to mobilize their votes for credible female candidates in the coming 2023 general election.
