Model women devel­op­ment cen­tres have been con­structed in all the 23 lo­cal govern­ment ar­eas of Sokoto State at the cost of N800 mil­lion, the Com­mis­sioner of Women and Chil­dren Af­fairs, Ha­jiya Kulu Si­fawa, has said.

She spoke yes­ter­day at the 17th Na­tional Coun­cil on Women and So­cial Devel­op­ment held in Sokoto, where she also re­vealed that her min­istry had cre­ated a draft on the do­mes­ti­cated gen­der pol­icy for the state and that it was ready for sub­mis­sion to the state gov­er­nor for ap­proval.

“As we all know, if a woman is strate­gic in creation, she must be re­source­ful when it comes to self-ac­tu­al­iza­tion, sel­f­re­liance and self-suf­fi­ciency,” she stated.
