Okorocha's Erection of My Statue in Imo State, Will Inspire Many Women in Africa- Johnson Sirleaf

The President of Liberia, Mrs. Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has stated that the erection of a statue in her honour in Imo State will inspire young girls and women in Africa to reach their potentials.


She said this while delivering a lecture on the topic “Women in Politics” at the International Convention Centre Owerri adding that as a continent Africa has some good reasons to celebrate.



“We can achieve our dreams. We can stand tall among the many women of the world in providing the kind of exemplary leadership that will lift us up to stand, as I stand representing women,” Sirleaf said.

“Women in Africa are still behind in Politics due to social, cultural, economic and political constraints that limit their political participation. And the women in Africa have to do much more to get the equality that we all seek”.

“Quality education changes the attitude and mindset of people. And equality means better performance, and also means better life for everyone. Hence, we need to put more emphasis on education to enhance performance. And that is why what the Imo Governor, Rochas Okorocha is doing with his Foundation should be encouraged”.

“In our political parties we need to put more emphasis on recruiting female candidates including in and outside politics. Our governments need to do more to putting female in up and down the hierarchy. We need to ensure that we as women take the advantages that we have and develop a strategy to deal with the disadvantages we face”.
