Esther Ijewere Threatens To Call Out Award Organiser For Removing Woman’s Name Because She Is A SINGLE MOM

Here’s what Esther wrote on her Facebook page.
Let me drop this here…
I was invited to join a whatsapp committe for a
“Women’s Award” slated for August few weeks back.
I agreed to join “only” because the organisers
said the vision is to celebrate outstanding women from different states in
Nigeria and also give them grants to support their projects etc….

Apparently, they already had their nominee list before i was
asked to join, I asked for a list and we started discussing different
categories and reasons why each of the nominees deserve the award, a single
mother who is based in Ebonyi was also nominated for her work with widows and
some members of the committee asked that her name be removed and I asked why, according
to them this woman is a single mum and she is from a remote state (Whatever
that means), therefore she is undeserving of the award based on this
“senseless reasons”. It turned into an argument and the “owners
of the award” said they won’t add her name to the list, i told them
politely that i can’t be part of a group of women who will discredit another
woman because she is a single mum and I left the group in peace.
The only reason why this woman was on the list in the first
place is because of her work , downplaying her effort because of her story is
wickedness. I don’t know this woman but i did a google search out of curiosity
and saw pictures of the widows she has helped by giving them hope.
Here is my thing: I wish you well with the Award BUT if that
woman is not on that list when you kick off publicity I WILL CALL YOU OUT. We
can’t be shouting women supporting women and we are the first to bring our fellow
woman down. You want to take away somebody’s glory because of her story, what
has being a single mum got to do with being awarded for your sweat as a
“WOMAN” and then the whole “she is not based in a particular
state thing is pure rubbish. Fear God!
I don’t know this woman but then i have lots of respect for
single mothers, it’s not a position anyone prays for neither should they be
judged based on that. I am for peace and harmony but on this one I no go keep
quiet …Naah!
No time for fakeness, it’s 2016.
