According to Ms Akpoti, the award does not take into cognizance the governor’s alleged violent actions against her and others.
“National Council for Women Societies @ncws_abuja should bury their heads in shame,” she tweeted on Sunday.
“Honouring Kogi’s Gov. Yahaya Bello as ‘Most Gender Sensitive Gov in Nigeria’ is an insult to d violence he unleashed to me, the dead @OfficialPDPNig woman leader & a host of others. Evil monster.”
The award presentation and decoration ceremony held on Saturday at the Glass House of Kogi State Government House, Lokoja.
Bello was also decorated as a ‘HE 4 SHE’ of Nigerian women which makes him a goodwill ambassador.
