What we are trying to do with this event is to speak to the minds of our women to imbibe “I can do” spirit in their endeavour and conquer the limitation spirit.
“If a woman like Mrs Awosika could excel in her chosen field. If Mrs Abike Dabiri-Erewa, could succeed and do well in a male-dominated field, then what is stopping others from achieving and even surpass the feat.
“What we are trying to achieve with this programme is to five Nigerian women a role model. This is a leadership initiative for women because they need to redevelop their talents for leadership development.
“So, the first event to the Conference is to speak about emotional health, concerning rape, abuse, domestic violence and all kinds of gender-based violation against a female child.
“A real woman must stay focussed, emotionally and financially stable. We are looking at total woman, at home, workplace, and in church, as a woman of God.”
Speaking on the “focus conference,” which features women achievers in their respective callings, the pastor said the registration portal had to be closed down due to a high number of subscription from prospective participants which had overtaken initial target.
