One group, the Society of Women Accountants of Nigeria, has called for the inclusion of credible women in political office.
SWAN said it will promote the country’s rapid growth and development.
A statement on Monday said the women accountants said this at a presidential luncheon held in honor of the 57th President of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria, Ms. Comfort Eyitayo.
A great patron of the group, Ms. Tokunbo Obafemi-Adegboola, urged the ICAN President to produce more women in leadership positions.
“This country needs diligent women, women of integrity, women who push, women who are focused. If a woman can wade into ICAN politics, come out and become president, and she’s still here, then you’ve made us proud. We now challenge you; we want women in politics,” she added.
SWAN National President, Ms. Nwamara Nnaji, said the event was also meant to recognize Eyitayo’s contributions to the cause of the group and ICAN.
She said, “Wherever she speaks to an audience, she has always spread SWAN, and I see that as one of the reasons more SWAN chapters are on board for the grand opening.
“In the last quarter of 2021, three new chapters were inaugurated. Currently, we have six chapters in the works that will be inaugurated before the end of June 2022.”
