It was a carnival-like atmosphere yesterday with live music from Abbas Akande Obesere and his band at the Haven Event Centre Ikeja G.R.A the venue of the Inauguration of the Lagos State Chapter of Women for SWAGA’23. 

The event was preceded by free medical Check and care for ailments such as, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol,  malaria and provision of free eye glasses  for reading and vision for those in need of them. 

Welcoming the guests and delegates from Osun, Oyo, Ogun, Ondo and Lagos States, the Lagos State Chapter Chairperson Hon. Bolanle Akinyemi-Obe who was the immediate past Chairman of Coker-Aguda LCDA observed that the initiative of the free health care was to provide succor for those needing care, ease the rigor of seeking Medicare and call attention of individuals to the need to check up regularly and take health issues seriously. 

The Chairman of SWAGA’23 in Lagos State Hon. Monsuru Alao represented by Hon. Oloruntoba Oke welcomed all to the state of aquatic splendor and wish the gathering a fruitful outing while thanking the women for mobilizing support for Asiwaju Tinubu in his bid for presidency of Nigeria.
In her Key Note address on “The Role of Women in Politics, Peace and Tranquility” the National Coordinator of women for SWAGA’23 Mrs Ayo Omidiran Re-emphasized the importance of women in politics, their role as mothers and their usefulness in mobilizing others for common good and purposes. She however lamented that despite the zeal of women and their enthusiasm for political involvement, not many women are currently involved in positions of authorities especially Executive and Legislative arms of Government even though efforts have started at party levels but there are lots more to be done in getting women elected into positions rather than making them second fiddles. This she said will improve the Nation’s peace, stability and tranquility.

The Governor of Lagos State Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu who was represented at the occasion by Commissioner of Women Affairs and Poverty Alleviation Hon. Cecilia Bolaji Dada. Thanked SWAGA’23 for their Commitment to the Asiwaju project 2023 and their support for his administration in Lagos State coupled with their impact in creating the necessary political awareness.
