First Lady, Oluremi Tinubu, Senate President Godswill Akbapio, Governors Seyi Makinde (Oyo) and Bala Mohammed (Bauchi) are expected at the 23rd National Women’s Conference organised by Committee of Wives of Lagos State Officials (COWLSO).
The conference, at Eko Hotel and Suites on Victoria Island in Lagos October 17 to 19, will be attended by over 5,000 women.
Wife of Lagos State governor and COWLSO Chairman, Mrs. Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu, said this year’s theme is: Unleash Your Potential.
She noted the conference has become a purpose-driven international event where women are galvanised and inspired to make a difference.
“This year’s edition is tailored towards assisting women to be more productive and influence the society.
“The conference will feature over 5,000 participants physically and virtually from Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs), other state delegates, political groups, civil society, and others.
“Seasoned facilitators and panellists will discuss topics affecting women, such as health, agriculture and food security, education, empowerment, cyber security, harnessing digital technology, family and lifestyle.
“Some pre-conference activities include COWLSO Fun Day to unwind, and awareness walk on October 7 at Epe. The public is enjoined to follow the activities through out website and other social media platforms.”
Chairman of the Conference Planning Committee, Prof. Olufunke Adeyeye, said the event is not only about sharing insight but also for ensuring that women are motivated to go beyond their comfort zones, “as the theme encapsulates their collective aspiration to break free from various constraints, limitations and barriers”.
Prof. Adeyeye added that the conference would enable participants to create a symphony of ideas to bring out the best in them.
