WorldStage Newsonline-- The wife of the Vice President, Mrs. Dolapo Osinbajo will on October 24 - 26, 2017 lead wives of governors and other women leaders to the Committee of Wives of Lagos State Officials (COWLSO) Women Conference in Lagos.
The event which will be hosted by the wife of the Governor of Lagos state, Mrs. Bolanle Ambode is expected to attract other women leaders such as the First Lady of Akwa Ibom State and that of Adamawa State.
Speaking with journalists about the event in Lagos, the Chairperson and wife of the Lagos State Governor, Mrs. Ambode said the conference with the theme: ‘She Creates, She Transforms’ will be declared open by Mrs Osinbajo. She is also expected to serve as the mother of the day at the event.
She explained that theme of the conference was carefully selected to focus on the ingenuity of Nigerian women in the pursuit of innovative and practical solutions towards achieving sustainable development within her immediate sphere and community at large.
“You will agree with me that women are uniquely created, endowed with skills and blessed with creativity. As helpmates, we care for the family and impact our immediate environment positively. The woman out of very little creates and transforms the little created to something bigger and better. Our transformation efforts extend to all facets of human engagement”, she said.
There will be presentation of certificates of appreciation to notable individuals and organisations for their long-standing partnership and support for COWLSO, while an award of inspirational women of the year would also be presented to a distinguished Nigerian woman achiever, who has excelled in her chosen career, mentored other women and has supported the vision of the group.
