NEWS­BYTES The con­fab ama­zons

Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Nu­rud­deen M. Ab­dal­lah

There are so many women aca­demics, politi­cians and tech­nocrats at­tend­ing the Na­tional Con­fer­ence. But only few of them ap­peared on the radar dur­ing the ple­nary so far.

Some of the ama­zons in­clude Se­na­tor Florence ItaGiwa, Se­na­tor Daisy Dan­juma, for­mer Women Af­fairs Min­is­ter Chief Josephine Anenih and Se­na­tor Khairat Gwad­abe. ItaGiwa and Gwad­abe have been roam­ing the floor of the ple­nary since its com­mence­ment two weeks ago. They were seen go­ing round ex­chang­ing ban­ters and con­fer­ring with other del­e­gates.

When it comes to con­tri­bu­tion dur­ing ses­sions, Mrs Anenih and Mrs Dan­juma are the most vis­i­ble, though.

The quiet ama­zons so far are Se­na­tor Gbe­misola Saraki, for­mer Women Af­fairs Min­is­ter Ha­jiya Aisha Isma’il, for­mer Ed­u­ca­tion Min­is­ter Prof. Ruqayy­atu Rufa’i, and for­mer In­for­ma­tion Min­is­ter Prof. Dora Akun­y­ili.
