Share This

The Rivers State Sector Commander of Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), CC Salisu Umar Galadunci on Monday, March 8, 2021 honoured  Women In Uniform in commemoration with International Women's Day. 

The occasion, which held at the Command Conference Hall was marked to celebrate and honour the great women of the world especially those in leadership and Women Officers drawn from other Security Agencies. 

The colourful occasion was chaired by the state's Commissioner for Commerce and Industry, Hon Mrs Clare Ify.

In her inspiring speech, Mrs Clare charged Women Officers not to look down on themselves and give in to  gender discrimination, and always strive to aspire and be self reliable to excel in their chosen careers. 

She said gone are the days when women allow themselves to be trampled upon and intimidated in their chosen career because it is termed as 'a man's world'.
She emphasized on the theme 'it is time to change the norms'.  

In conclusion, the Commissioner appreciated the work the FRSC Female Staff are doing despite the challenges of both office and family demand, especially caring for the children, which in most cases the society term it a woman's job.

She finally thanked the Sector Commander for remembering women in uniform at this difficult time in our nation. 

Earlier in his address, Corps Commander, Galadunci, enumerated the reasons that motivated him to call for this gathering, stating that he is inspired by his mother whom sponsored his education to become whom he is today. Giving all glory to God for the women, despite all odds, went out of their way to train their children to become better humans in the society. 

Highlight of the occasion was presentation of gifts to two female FRSC staff by the Commissioner. The two female staff were the Sector Head of Operations and Marshal Assistant in the Sector Commander's office in appreciation of the invaluable service they render day in day out. 

Giving vote of thanks, the DC Ops DCC Bridget Asekhauno, thanked everyone for attending despite the short notice, and appreciated the visionary leadership of the Sector Commander for putting this event despite limited resources. She did not  end her remark without a confession that when the Sector Commander called her in the night about the need to have the programme she said in her words " there he come again". But knowing her boss who always get what he wants made her swing into action, today the event turn out to be the first the Command has ever hosted. 

In attendance were Representatives from the Nigerian Immigration DC Obianuju Sam-Idigo Mrs, DC CN Okpo Mrs of NSCDC, CSP Ereme Edith Mrs, DPO Abali Division, Mrs Agbeh, Ag ROSOWA Chairperson Rivers, PRO of the Nigerian Correctional Service, Rivers Command, Juliet Ofoni, female staff from RS6 HQ Port Harcourt , staff from Eleme and Isiokpo Unit Commands among others.
