“I think it is a joy to women because in my state, all the women gathered yesterday and said they wanted to come and say thank you to the president.

“You can see how women are getting something in this administration that is to say this administration has great emphasis on women.”

According to the governor, the nomination and submission of of Dongban-Mensem’s name, who hails from Plateau State, showed that Nigerian women were coming up in all  sectors.

Lalong added that Dongban-Mensem, is qualified to be the President, Court of Appeal, by progression.

“I was elated when I heard yesterday (Monday) that the President has nominated one of us from Plateau to that highest position.

“I must say highest position because as far as I am concerned, nobody has reached that position in the judiciary from Plateau State.

“This is the first time we are having it; so we send our gratitude to God and we are praying to God and also sending our gratitude to the President, the vice president and everybody who thought she was qualified to be in the National Assembly.”
