The Launch of the Women in Governance Network (WIGN) was a success in Bayelsa State. Over 150 women from various communities in Bayelsa state participated in the event. The torch has been lit and given to them to go into their communities, mobilise and mentor other women. This is with support from the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Abuja.
The WIGN is a platform designed by CEHRD to bring together women in politics and promote their inclusion and participation in politics. The network encourages women to support each other in politics, irrespective of parties’ affiliations.
