Dr. Mary Alile-Idele, the National Women Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), has applauded the Governor of Benue State, Rev. Fr. Hyacinth Iormem Alia for his unwavering support towards enhancing women participation in politics in the state.

Dr. Alile-Idele gave the commendation in Makurdi, the Benue State capital during the flagging off of the pilot scheme of her nationwide pet-programme, “Project 774 Explode Initiative” for women in politics.

A statement by the Media office of the National Women Leader in Abuja on Friday said that “Project 774 Explode Initiative” is a nation-wide campaign aimed at mobilizing and empowering women in politics across the 774 local government areas of the country.

The project’s primary objective is also to enhance gender space in politics by ensuring that the APC’s female constituents are actively engaged in the political activities and decision-making processes.

The National Women Leader was quoted to have praised Governor Alia for pioneering the project in the country and his commitment towards women’s empowerment in driving sustainable development.

She highlighted that the governor’s efforts in creating an enabling environment for women in the state to thrive, both in the public and private sectors are worthy of emulation by other states Chief Executives in the interest of the teeming women populace in the country.

Dr. Alile-Idele further described the governor’s commitment to the “Project 774 Explode Initiative” particularly as a testament to his vision for a more inclusive and equitable Benue State.

She cited the provision of financial assistance to over 5,000 beneficiaries of the project in the 23 local government areas of Benue State by the state governor.

“We commend the governor for providing opportunities for women to strive in his government. We also applaud his entrepreneurial support for women in the state.

“The unwavering support for the “Project 774 Explode” by the governor is an inspiration and will undoubtedly pave the way for a stronger, more vibrant, and empowered women’s community in Benue State”, she said.
