By Dupson Collins, 8th March, 2023

The Chief Medical Director of the Sckye Hospitals Ltd Akure,Ondo State, Dr Thomas-Wilson Ikubese joined well meaning Nigerians to celebrate women across every divides as they celebrate International Women Day today while also penning glowing tributes to his better half.

The day is an annual event set aside by the United Nations to celebrate women on the 8th of March every year across the globe. The UN theme for this year’s International Women’s Day is “DigitALL: Innovation and technology for gender equality”.

This theme is aligned with the priority theme for the upcoming 67th Session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW-67), “Innovation and technological change, and education in the digital age for achieving gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls”.

In his Facebook Account, Ikubese described the importance of women in the society and the motherly roles they are playing saying they ought to be pampered always no matter their shortcoming.

He described her darling wife as ‘ATUPA” , the symbol of womanhood, dignity of creation, mystery of Olodumare. “I doff my hat so, for this is the least I can do, as I cast Àtùpà this day, the symbol of womanhood, dignity of creation, mystery of Olódùmarè!”

The message read:

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY

Women are a special breed, deserving of honour and pamper. Tenderly created by Òrìsà Òkè, to make Ìsálú Ayé merry.

Try not to understand a woman, lest you’re frustrated beyond redemption. Just love her in her many colours, for even she understands not herself…

Be irked not when she demands of you milk, honey, silver and gold, for she was delicately moulded by Adániwáyé so precariously to be adored, adorned.

Show me a man who raises his hands against this treasure and I’ll point for you a beast, worthy of permanent residence in the heartland of Sambisa.

For a gender that put their lives on the line to bring forth another in a risky cycle of nine moons per voyage, I doff my hat so, for this is the least I can do, as I cast Àtùpà this day, the symbol of womanhood, dignity of creation, mystery of Olódùmarè!
