Omolara added that the gift was part of their effort to give back to the society most especially women.

According to her" We believe in Ogun State, the Nigeria Labour Congress women committee  should have input in our women in the State.
"To train our women for self sufficiency and to empower them so that we can be independent. There's gender equality, what a man can do a woman can do it better.

"That's why we come out to tell the whole world  that we can do better. Then,  they always say women are enemies of themselves, we  have come out to prove it to them we are friends of ourselves, nothing like enemies of ourselves, we are going there to achieve our goals.
Comrade Omolara called on the  State Government to come to their aide by empowering women across the state.

"We have been advising women in Ogun State that we should not rely on salary alone ,  there are a lot of work we can learn  that can give us money, lets learn so that we can be able to take care of ourselves.

She therefore adviced  philanthropist, organisations to assist in women by empowering them so as to be self sufficient.
