Abuja - Delta State Governor, Emmanuel Uduaghan, has charged women in leadership positions to mentor their younger peers so as to prepare them for responsible and leadership roles ahead.
He was speaking at a just-ended gala night which climaxed the three-day Sun Women Leadership Summit.
The event was held under theme, "The New Woman Winning in a Man's World", in Asaba.
The governor said women could produce a better generation for the country if the younger ones were properly mentored.
According to him, Nigerian women were intelligent, resourceful and high fliers in various fields of endeavor but required the right mentoring for them to achieve their potentials.

“Develop the younger ones as the new women require mentoring, the easiest person to mentor is your daughter, train her up in the path to follow and she will excel. Our daughters are very sharp and doing well in school but they require mentors, please mentor the younger ones,” Uduaghan said.
He reiterated that the state government sponsored the summit as it was in tandem with the state government’s human capital development agenda especially as the development of the women folk was crucial to the development of the society.
The governor stressed that the summit helped refocus women in Delta as well as improve the general perception and appreciation of the womenfolk.
“This summit has generated a lot of interest worldwide with a lot of commendations, most women have learnt a lot from this summit including the men who have now appreciated the women better,” he said.
