THE partnership between the Nigeria Cooperative Women Alliance, NICOWA, an independent Non-Governmental Association which unites, represents and serves women co-operatives nationwide and celebrity hangout, O’jez Entertainment Limited has given birth to an empowerment theme song for the women folks across Nigeria.
The partners paid a visit to the Federal Director of Cooperatives, Dr. Dickson Okolo in his Abuja office recently where he assured the group of government support while endorsing the Theme song which he described as “highly motivational and inspirational.”
Presenting the song to Okolo, National President of the Association, Dr. Esther Eka, said that the song will be NICOWA’s anthem which will be played at all their events and members will have a copy each.
Capacity building and empowerment training for members, she said, are one of the most important activities of NICOWA. “Savings activities in the NICOWA have been ongoing for a number of years. Considerable experience has been gained and sizeable funds mobilized. These activities have provided the basis for the central cooperative savings scheme, this scheme is currently at an early stage of implementation. It is planned that it will gradually expand to cover every primary society in the country, and increasingly become an important factor in cooperative financial self-sufficiency for the NICOWA Cooperative Bank,” she said.
Dr. Okolo called for the spread of the theme song in the mass media for it to inspire more women across Nigeria and not just NICOWA members as, he said, it is highly inspirational and motivational.
Nollywood star Zach Orji who led the team O’jez comprising of Chief Joseph Odobeatu, President, O’jez Entertainment Limited and fellow Nollywood stars Charles Inojie and Mrs. Chidi Okafor also revealed the planned NICOWA/O’jez Integrity Award For Women scheduled to hold in the later part of the year, the aim, he said is to boost the image of cooperatives in Nigeria.
