In his goodwill message, Ayo Olajiga, the Managing Director of FoodPro Limited, who was represented by Opeyemi Ogungbade, the factory Manager, said: "the involvement and celebration of the low wage workers was key to the organization because International Women's Day belongs to all communities everywhere, government, companies, Charities, educational Institutions, networks, associations, the media and more. Whether through a global conference, community gathering, classroom lesson or dinner table conversation, everyone can play a purposeful part in pressing for gender parity which is the theme of the year's event."

During the event, a workshop and empowerment program was put together titled "Personal Hygiene, Basic Health and Safety Rules. Food and Nutrition for Low wageworkers".

There was also a free screening opportunity for the women with a final cap ofthe full celebration of International Women's Day.

Abimbola Ademola from General Hospital Taiwo, Ilorin taught the audience on the need for a balanced carbohydrate and protein diet without breaking the bank. In attendance were all female staffs of FoodPro Ilorin, with special emphasis on female factory workers, Moyo Oduwobi, Head of Operations HRM, Adetutu Obalaiye, Quality Assurance Manager Grace Darko, Factory Accountant amongst others.

In a related development, Moyo Oduwobi said Collective action and shared responsibility for driving gender parity is what makes International Women’s Day successful, adding that the story of women's struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights.
