The Wife of the Ogun State Governor, Mrs. Bamidele Abiodun has
called for unity among various women groups across the nation, to
foster all-round development.
Speaking at the Gala Night, marking the closing of the 2-day OSUNWA
Women Conference, held in Oshogbo, Osun state, Mrs. Abiodun expressed
optimism that, with continuous enlightenment and empowerment of women
by states, particularly through the offices of the first ladies, women
advancement in all spheres would be rapid.
She congratulated the Wife of the Governor of the State of Osun,
Mrs. Kafayat Oyetola and the government of the State for hosting a
successful Conference that brought together women from the South-West
States to learn and be empowered.
Speaking, the host Governor Mr. Gboyega Oyetola, appreciated the
presence of Mrs. Bamidele Abiodun and other wives of the South West
Governors at the ceremony, thanking them for their supports for his
wife and the state.
He reiterated his continued and unflinching support for Women on
developmental programmes that would further empower them, adding that
government policies and programmes would only thrive, if women are
given roles in decision making and governance.
Mrs. Oyetola, who is the Chairperson, Osun Women Development
Association (OSUNWA), in her remark, thanked everyone for gracing the
event, soliciting continued cooperation of the Osun women to move the
state to the next level.
She encouraged delegates from other states to take all they
learned back to the women groups and societies in their various
states, noting that the development agenda for the South-West states
was paramount.
The ceremony featured awards, cultural entertainment and raffle
draws, where items such as cars, tricycles, refrigerators, grinding
machines among others were won by delegates.
