Governor Ambode said.. "Nigerian women in different spheres are naturally gifted with skills and talents that make positive impact in the society. Our women have the capacity to positively affect the Nigerian economy and are already doing so".

Congratulations to the lady mechanic, Mrs. Sandra Aguebor, recipient of the Inspirational Woman Award. She has “created and transformed” in an area regarded as solely reserved for men. The award was presented to her by the wife of the Vice President of Nigeria "Mrs Dolapo Osinbajo".

Sandra Aguebor is the first lady mechanic in Nigeria. She grew up in Benin City and had the vision to become an auto mechanic at the age of 13. She has defied all odds to become a force to reckon with. She has also added tremendous value to the society by training sex workers, orphans, and victims of trafficking to be mechanics.

God bless this woman.

This woman should have gotten a Presidential Award,and or if possible a National Award for breaking through grounds held by men.

Do you know the sexual harrasment she might have faced in the Boys Club(Auto Repair World) by men?

Especially in Nigeria where females are first sexualized,even before their C.V is looked at to see their potential.

Most females here can relate to this.

That she even grew up in Benin,and did not TOW the road to ITALY but instead chose to work, should get her a Presidential Medal.

Mrs. Sandra Aguebor, may your metal never go blunt,and may you continue to be an inspiration to other ladies to walk the right path.

Your Eldorado awaits you with bountiful gifts.

If only our women can emulate this woman and stop looking at relationship and marriages as occupation!
This is the true definition of gender equality.

The Italo phenomenon was not in existence when she was young, it started in the late 80s-90s.
She grew up at time in Benin there was dignity in labour.
She's highly commendable because back then she must have been mocked by all boys and girls for being a female Mechanic apprentice.
As for the vision of being one, it was her father who was a well known farmer and farmers union leader in the 70s, that sow the vision to her after he travelled to Germany, saw women mechanics there wandered there were no female mechanics in Nig then.
