Association advocates increased women involvement in entrepreneurship, children upbringing

The Nigerian Association of Women Entrepreneurs (NAWE) on Thursday advocated for more women participation in self-development efforts capable of building strong and Godly families.

Mrs. Vera Ndanusa, the National President of NAWE, who gave the advice during her visit to Plateau to inspect some business premises owned by some members of the association, also called on women to be more committed to the good upbringing of their children.

Ndanusa, who was conducted round by the Mrs. Linda Shehu-Pukat led Executive Council of the state chapter of the association, described as saddening and unfortunate, the turn of events among some homes and the level of moral decadence being witnessed in the global World society.

She particularly regretted that youths of today who required to be taught good morals and fear of God were not being adequately handled to become useful for a better Nigeria.

“Today, we are battling with various forms of indiscipline and criminality from some of the youths across the globe, including Nigeria

” This calls for a rethink at the home front, in order to checkmate and eradicate such ills to guarantee a progressive and peaceful society.

“NAWE vision and mission is not only to encourage the women folks into participating in entrepreneurial activities that will stimulate and boost the nation’s economy toward attaining growth and development but to also assist in transforming the home front at raising God-fearing children.

“The purpose of my visit to Plateau is to ginger you as entrepreneurs, not to relent, irrespective of the myriad of challenges occasioned by the various challenges being faced, but firmly resolve to do your best to put the nation on the right path of development,” she said.

The NAWE President said that the association was out to synergize with the Federal and State Governments toward opening up opportunities for women to showcase their God-given talents in administration, business, and politics at all levels.

Earlier in her welcome address, Plateau Director of NAWE, Shehu-Pukat, told the president that they were encouraged and strengthened by her visit and pledged to keep the flag of the association flying in the state.

She said membership of the association was built up by the day, as some members, who had left before, were now returning along with others joining afresh.

She attributed the development to the leadership qualities of the president which started manifesting since assuming office in April.
