Director General of Cross River State Primary Healthcare Development Agency, Dr Betta Edu has challenged women in the state to support their fellow womanhood rather then castigate them unjustly whenever they attain certain political height in the society.
Dr Edu stated this via her offical Facebook handle, where he berrated the rate at which women conceive many wrong notions that except they engage in sexual escapade with their male counterpart they may not achieve their goal in the society.
The amicable DG, who remains the youngest woman to be appointed under the administration of Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River State, called on all women in the state and Nigeria at large to maintain their dignity, pride and remain steadfast in their endeavours.
“It’s so sad that our society does not believe that women can get to the top maintaining their dignity, purity and intergrity.
“Once they see a beautiful, smart, intelligent, hardworking woman make progress in her career, profession or Endeavours, the next thing you hear is “She slept with MR A, B, C, D that’s how she got where she is” ” she is sleeping with men thats how she got her money” ” she slept with that man to gain favour” but if a man make progress; he is smart, intelligent and very hard working. This judgement is unfair!!!
“It’s sad that the judgement is not only passed on women by men, but by their fellow women who feel threatened and probably jealous!
“Women are smart, We are intelligent, We are goal getters, We don’t need to sleep with a man to achieve any success in life or gain favour! Favour comes from God, mercy comes from God, progress Comes from God, any woman who keys into God and works hard will make good success!!!!!
“Remember, whom God has blessed no man can curse!!!! You can only paddle false stories but the more you hate…you trigger God to bless that person more!!!!!
“My fellow women, when you see a sister progressing support her, it’s not easy, nobody ,not even her inner family might be with her on the struggle to make a difference. What you associate yourself with is what you gradually become! Rather than imagine she slept with a man to get where she is, get closer and find out the great things she is doing, that way you learn and soon begining to succeed. Forget your beauty…it will fade, go and work hard. Work harder than men, the same people who ask you for friendship or illicit relationship will come back with excess respect, bowing at your feet, seeking favours from you!!!!!
“The world must know that women are worth more than the kitchen and the other room. We are on this planet to make a difference, We are on this planet to ignite positive change…and that we must do!!!!!
“Women; its your time; rise above the situation and make all the difference…the world will remember that they was once a woman and that woman is You!!!!!!
