NAWOJ Plans 500 Housing Units For Members


The President of Nigerian Association of Women Journalists (NAWOJ), Mrs Ifenyinwa Omowole, has said that the association plans to build 500 housing units for her members within the tenure of the present administration.
Omowole made this known during the cultural festival, marking the association’s 25th anniversary celebration in Abeokuta last week.
The president said the plan was to ensure that every NAWOJ member becomes a house owner, which would definitely alleviate accommodation problems that members are currently facing in Nigeria.
The NAWOJ boss said that the association is moving to greater heights and would partner with government and a reputable company to achieve this feat.
She called on both the federal and state governments to provide the association with a land to achieve this set target.
On the journey so far, she said that NAWOJ has come a long way and has made laudable achievement in the society within these 25 years, especially in projecting women and the girl-child in the society.
She commended the Governor of Ogun State, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, for the remarkable change he has brought to the state within his few years in office.
In an interview, the NAWOJ Vice President representing the South-South zone, Mrs Timipre Idoko, said the housing plan was a welcome development to put smiles on the faces of Nawojians.
Idoko noted that if the housing project is achieved, it would be the greatest achievement of the association, adding that the mission is to empower female journalists across the country and also draw from the Dubai experience where such things are found.
She also said that the housing units if achieved would neither be rented out nor sold to another person, adding that it is not for commercial purpose but for female journalists.
