WIFE OF THE VICE PRESIDENT, MRS DOLAPO OSINBAJO TASKS WOMEN ON DEVELOPMENT
The wife of Nigeria’s vice President, Mrs Dolapo Osinbajo has advised Nigerian women to adopt periodic self-evaluation of an all-round development for possible adjustment.
Speaking at a two-day National Women Conference organised by Osun Officers’ Wives Association in Osogbo, Osinbajo stressed the importance of self-assessment as catalyst to development.
Mrs Osinbajo, who spoke on the theme of the conference: “Virtuous Woman: Pushing for Greater Development”, noted that women are expected to be harbinger of virtues that are worthy of emulation by their children and the society at large. This further helps to mark the international women’s day for women which is celebrated on the 8th of March every year.
