Dr. Efole however thanked the award organiser for counting her worthy for the prestigious award. While launching the magazine, in appreciation, she also dished out half a million to support Princess Eno Udo foundation.
In her words, while speaking with the journalists at the event, “The awards I have won means that I’m doing something right and that people are noticing them. When you are being recognized and given an award, it means there is need for you to do more, it also means that you are being appreciated and that your labour is not in vain.
“It is an impetus. It means that people are noticing my good works and I give God all the glory. Giving to people in need comes to me naturally; you are supposed to reach out to people whenever you can. You should not deny anybody that help because God gives it to us freely and you should be able to reach out to others freely.”
Amb. Efole appreciated the award organizer for her perception, adding “She was able to recognize me. One, I’m not boasting, I’m of a good stock, I was well brought up and I have excelled, I have improved over the years.”
Amb. Eunice Efole, has called on Nigerian women to get involved in active politics, to show their talents, education, exposure and experience, stressing that Nigeria is due for a female president.
She also challenged Nigerian women to come out from hiding and seek support from the women folk and make impact using their God-given talents, potentials and capabilities.
According to her, “Women should be out there because they have a lot of potentials, a lot of virtues, a lot of gifts and talents. They should not stifle themselves; they should come out there and showcase their talents. As a matter of fact, Nigeria is due for a female president”.
Responding to the question if she intends to go into politics, she said, “We are all political; we do political activities even in our homes and offices. Politics is a lifestyle; it’s about what we do in our service to a fellow human being. We do not need to call women to get involved in politics, it’s imperative for them to come out. Women do not need to be pushed; this is the time and age where women excel”.
She said, “The awards I have won means that I’m doing something right and that people are noticing them. When you are being recognized and given an award, it means there is need for you to do more, it also means that you are being appreciated and that your labour is not in vain.
“To the youths, there’s no 360 degree way to success, you have to pass through the process. They should take their time. They should harness their God-given talents. They should be out there doing the right things as youths. We had to go through processes to get to where we are today. They should go through the process,” she urged.
Her opinion on the forthcoming general elections, the CEO of Efole Nigeria limited who is also the current Ambassador for PDP Support Group noted that she is drumming up support for Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the PDP’s presidential candidate because of his experience as a former vice president, adding that Nigeria does not need a neophyte at this point in time.
She however expressed confidence that the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Mr Peter Obi would perform very well if he works with Atiku.
She said, “I was given the Ambassadorial position January this year. I’m focusing on somebody with a lot of experience in the political terrain of this country. We don’t need a neophyte right now. We need somebody who knows the nooks and cranny of this country.
“I’m supporting Atiku, I have my reasons for that. I have this believe that Obi will do well working with Atiku, that is my assumption because Atiku is a man of the South and a man of the East. He knows the west as well. Obi will do very well if he works with Atiku. He should work with Atiku after all he was his running mate in 2019 general election”.
