*Women’s👩 Inclusion Pivotal for Devt — Samira Bawumia

The wife of the Vice President, Mrs Samira Bawumia, has called for women’s inclusion in national development and asked African governments to prioritise women issues in decision-making processes.
She emphasised the need for women and girls to be given equal access to education, health care, decent work, and representation in political and economic decision-making processes.
She urged all to fight against all forms of sexual and gender-based violence and harmful practices against women, which retarded their economic development.
Mrs Bawumia made the call when she delivered a keynote address at the “Faces of Africa” Summit at the John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, in Maryland, USA.
