A new co-ordinator of Nigeria Women In Information Technology (NIWIIT), Lagos State Chapter, Mrs. Folake Etomi and her new executive were on Thursday, 10th February 2022 in a colourful ceremony that took place in Lagos, sworn into office to take charge of the professional women association henceforth.
- Her other executive members include: Edna Adeyemi, General Secretary; Joyce Ugbosu, PRO; Elizabeth Adekunle, Welfare Officer and Oluwadamilola Aremu as Special Duties Officer.
In her speech the outgoing co-ordinator, Mrs Monisola Timi-Zacchaeus, encouraged the new executive to build on the activities of their predecessors, acknowledging that there was still a lot of work to be done and while citing membership drive as one of the areas that requires attention.
- Responding, the new Lagos State co-ordinator, Mrs. Etomi, thanked God for the opportunity given her to serve the association, adding that both herself and members of her new executive take seriously this new assignment which speaks volumes of the confidence members of the association repose in them.
She pointed out that information technology has taken over man’s life and has become the vehicle in which the economies of nations thrive.
The new co-ordinator further said that she would work hard to make sure that information technology laws in Lagos State are similar to what are obtainable internationally so that Lagos and Nigeria can tap from the enormous benefits of ICT.
The national president of NIWIIT, Mrs. Dele Bayo-Osibo, who inaugurated the new executive for Lagos State stated that state chapters are pivotal to what ‘we do as NIWIIT, and impact has to be achieved at the state level’.
The event was witnessed by the co-ordinator of Nigeria Computer Society, (NCS), Lagos State Chapter and other senior members of both NCS and NIWIIT.
- The ceremony, a hybrid of some sort saw some executive members who were not physically present at the venue, took their own oath of office virtually.
