Speaking through the Minister of Women Affairs, Dame Pauline Tallen, FG noted that Simba Group has contributed immensely to women’s empowerment and gender equity in the country. 

A press statement available to ITREALMS, Tallen made this known during the 2023 International Women’s Day celebration
hosted recently in Lagos, by Access Bank.

ITREALMS recalled that the Simba Group initiated its collaboration with the Ministry in 2020, which has since supported and encouraged the company’s efforts to enhance opportunities for underrepresented women to participate in the Nigerian commercial transport industry. 

The company also received the Ministry’s Product Recognition Award “in recognition of the laudable initiatives to improve the wellbeing and livelihood of Nigerian Women and Vulnerable Groups.”

Further, Tallen commended the company for its efforts in supporting women via the programme noting that they are in line with the government's vision of empowering women nationwide.

The Queen Riders Program provides training to women on vehicle riding and repairs,
mentorship, and access to financing. The program, which is built on four pillars of Opportunity, Development, Empowerment, and Independence, has successfully enriched the lives and livelihoods of hundreds of women across different parts of the country.

Simba Group Managing Director, Chief Vinay Grover, expressed gratitude for the Minister for the recognition and promised to continue to do more to support women's empowerment, gender equity, and financial freedom. 

Grover was also quoted as saying "We are honored to have received such positive feedback from the Hon. Minister. The Queen Riders program was established to support and empower under-represented women and we are grateful to the Minister and the Ministry of Women’s Affairs for its guidance and encouragement. Furthermore, we understand the role the private sector plays in empowering women and will continue to drive forward these important initiatives.”
