International Men’s Day: Billionaire Businesswoman, Folorunso Alakija Educates On Why Men Should Be Celebrated As Women

Today, October 19, is International Men’s Day, and Nigerian billionaire businesswoman and philanthropist, Apostle Folorunsho Alakija has taken to her Instagram page to educate on why there is a need to set a day apart to celebrate men.

According to the billionaire oil mogul and richest woman in Africa, men are just as much in need of celebration and support as women.

The grandma further stated that according to World Health Organisation, across the world, suicide rates are significantly higher for men compared to women.

Mrs Alakija noted that like women, men are also imprisoned by unrealistic societal expectations and stereotypes and they are just as much in need of celebration and support as women.

She then went on to celebrate all the incredible men who are positive role models to young ones and a loving pillar of strength to their families and communities.

“Today is International Men’s Day, a global annually day set aside to recognise and celebrate the cultural, political, and socioeconomic achievements of men.

The day aims to highlight positive role models and raise awareness of men’s well-being, and celebrate boys’ and men’s achievements and contributions, for their contributions to the nation, union, society, community, family, marriage, and childcare.

Like women, men are also imprisoned by unrealistic societal expectations and stereotypes.

It is my opinion that men are just as much in need of celebration and support as women. A thriving society cannot be possible without equal focus on both genders.

I celebrate all the incredible men who are positive role models to young ones and a loving pillar of strength to their families and communities.”
