Daily Trust - - JOBS & CAREERS - By Olayemi John-Men­sah

The Pres­i­dent, Na­tional Coun­cil of Women So­ci­eties (NCWS), Mrs Glo­ria Shoda, has been ap­pointed as the co­or­di­na­tor of So­cial Is­sues for the In­ter­na­tional Coun­cil of Women (ICW ).

A state­ment from the coun­cil said the ap­point­ment was in recog­ni­tion of her nu­mer­ous achieve­ments in repo­si­tion­ing the NCWS in Nige­ria which has been ac­claimed in the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity.

The spokesper­son of the coun­cil, Mrs. Safiya Ibrahim Ogoh, who is­sued the state­ment, said the ap­point­ment will spur the na­tional pres­i­dent to a greater height in pur­su­ing the goals and mis­sions of the coun­cil, and called on Nige­rian women and other stake­hold­ers to sup­port her.

It would be re­called that the 35th Gen­eral Assem­bly of ICW which held in Yo­gyakata, In­done­sia, nom­i­nated Shoda as the co­or­di­na­tor of the com­mit­tee.

She was also as­signed the re­spon­si­bil­ity to re­vive and es­tab­lish the Re­gional African Women Coun­cil as the co­or­di­na­tor of the im­ple­men­ta­tion com­mit­tee along with other African women lead­ers, with a South African as the sec­re­tary of the com­mit­tee.
