Obaseki appoints One Special Adviser, 18 Special Assistants on Gender by

In 2017 there is a quote for women as if they are a minority group who should be patted on the head with non jobs. All the major policy post holders in the state are men. This is tokenism and of no effect to the advancement of both women and the state.

The Governor of Edo State, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has approved the appointment of one Special Adviser and 18 Special Assistants on Gender, in pursuance of his administration’s policy designed to give the required attention to gender issues.

Obaseki gave the approval for the appointment of the 19 aides on Thursday in Benin City, the Edo State capital.

According to the governor, “It is a deliberate policy to ensure that there is gender balance in my administration and that more women should participate in governance. These appointments are therefore geared towards the implementation of this policy.”

The new appointees on gender issues are:

  1. Efosa Uyigue, Special Adviser on Gender, from Ovia North East LGA
  2. Ebikueluye Jessica Bose, Special Assistant, Gender from Esan Central LGA
