Governor Adil donates vehicle to the C. Equatoria Women's Union
The Central Equatoria State governor on Monday donated a new car to the state’s women's union to help them facilitate their activities.
The donation comes following Governor Emmanuel Adil’s pledge to the women's union during his state tour.
Speaking during a ceremony where the car was handed over to the women, Huda Micheal Laila, the Central Equatoria State Minister of Gender, Child, and Social Welfare, said the women in the state are very happy and she lauded the government for donating the vehicle.
“We women in Central Equatoria State are very, very happy with the state government. It is the first government that is giving a vehicle to facilitate women’s work in the six counties of the state,” she said. “So, we women appreciate the government, Governor Adil, and his leadership. We are very happy!”
“This is a vehicle given to us by the governor to facilitate the work of the women so please take care of it, mobilize and empower women in the state,” Laila added.
For her part, Cecilia Luka, the deputy chairperson of the Central Equatoria Women’s Union, appreciated the governor and said that the vehicle will help them to mobilize easily since elections will be held next year.
“Let God be with the governor so that he can continue helping the women. Governor Adil is the first governor in Central Equatoria State to empower the women,” she said. “You have given the women a car today so that we can do mobilization for the elections. We will be able to help women across the state.”
