Political mandate (BAE 2019)
The role of a woman in society places her in a unique position to be a peace builder,who makes sacrifices to provide stability for herself,her family and her community. When women know their rights,first as humans,then as wives and mothers,they better appreciate the effort of creating an ambiance of love and peace in the home, and supporting the economic status of the family.
This is what Hon. Blessing Aishat Ekele believes and stands for,and it is not surprising that the bane of her political mandate is hinged on WOMEN EMPOWERMENT; ENCOURAGING AND SUPPORTING GIRL CHILD EDUCATION.
Sequel to the core mandate is a 5points agenda,a frame work to pilot the vision and mission of of her campaign.
