Speaking during the event held at the Press Centre, Iyaganku, Chairman, Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Oyo State, Mr. Gbenga Opadotun, commended the maturity of the immediate Chairperson of Oyo NAWOJ, Mrs. Kiitan Adeagbo, noting that “peace reigned throughout her tenure within the association in the state.”
Mr. Opadotun admonished the in-coming executive members to take off from where she left and tap from her pool of knowledge in taking the association to a greater level.
Mrs. Adeagbo, in her remarks, said: “The position, I must say, brought out the best in me as it moulded me into a more matured person while exposing me to greater challenges.”
In her acceptance speech, the newly sworn-in Oyo NAWOJ Chairperson, Mrs. Foluso Lala, emphasised her determination to embark on training and re-training of members during her tenure.
Her words: “I also will embark on professionalism training and re-training programmes for members. I understand that many women who are not financially buoyant are so because they are not creative and productive. To be of help, skills acquisition programmes to empower our women both within and outside the enclave of NAWOJ, would not be overlooked. The programmes will spur them to be financially active.”
