The wife of Ondo State Governor, Mrs. Betty Anyanwu-Akeredolu has been honoured with the ICT First lady in Nigeria by Organisers of Ondo State Social Media Day.
The event took place at T.J Francis Auditorium, Federal University of Technology, Akure, Ondo State.
The wife of the Governor, Arabirin Betty Anyanwu Akeredolu who launched the Ondo State ICT Programme for the Girl-Child at the State Public Service Training Institute (PSTI), Ilara Mokin, said the best way to empower the nation is by giving girls access to technology.
Such a measure, Arabirin Akeredolu said, would lead to the development of the state, especially if the girl-child is given the right tools to express herself.
This is only natural, the first lady averred, as the knowledge gained about Information Communication Technology (ICT) will enable the girl-child stay informed about the world around her.
