The founder of Stanbic IBTC Bank and president of the Anap Foundation, Mr Atedo Peterside, has called on men across Nigeria to support women.
He made the call amidst the 2022 International Women’s Day and the ‘one million march’ held Tuesday against the recent rejection of pro-women bills by the National Assembly.

Peterside, who expressed support for the campaign against the lawmakers’ action, noted that both genders are critical to the sustainability of the country.
In a tweet, he said, “If you do not appreciate your mother, then I am sorry for you. It is time to rethink; confident men should support our women because we need them at the table”.
He said confident men should show interest in the wellbeing of the female gender “because we need them at the table.”
He said the Anap Foundation had continued its enlightenment campaign, GoNigeria, to sensitize Nigerian youths to the need to participate in the election of visionary leaders.
He said the campaign “is in full gear with 18 initial advocates of Anap Foundation being fully onboard and GoAmbassadors, GoPartners and GoVolunteers who have intensified efforts at encouraging young Nigerians to register and collect their PVC to vote in next year’s general elections towards ensuring good governance and accessing the true dividends of democracy”.
