The Chairman of Lagos NIPR, the foremost and flagship chapter of the Nigerian Institute of Public Relations (NIPR), Mrs. Comfort Nwankwo, has congratulated the recently appointed helmswomen in Guaranty Trust Bank (GTB), First City Monument Bank (FCMB), Fidelity Bank and Lagos Chambers of Commerce and Industry (LCCI), for breaking the corporate glass ceilings.
In her congratulatory message, Mrs. Comfort Nwankwo, described the appointments of the women as “music to the ears of women empowerment advocates across the country”.
In a statement signed by the Public Relations Executive of the Chapter, Samuel O. Adeyemi, the Chapter Chairman noted that the elevation of the women will further inspire young women in the country who feel marginalised and left behind to believe that there is no limit to what they can achieve in life if they work hard.
Mrs. Nwankwo said: “On behalf of all communications professionals in Lagos, I’d like to congratulate all these outstanding women who have attained the peak of their banking profession despite the social, economic and political challenges against women.
“We believe that their elevation will further create a platform that will inspire more young women to know that the glass ceilings can be shattered irrespective of how daunting it might be.”
“We at Lagos NIPR are always advancing the cause of women empowerment as espoused in our program, Strong Tender & Empowered Women Summit (STEWS) which holds annually to commemorate the International Women’s Day.
Nwankwo added; “At Lagos NIPR, we practise what we preach. We are strong on women empowerment. For instance, in the past two dispensations in the chapter, women have constituted about 50% of the executive council and just a few weeks ago, members elected me as the chairman of the Chapter.”
“As these new captains in GTB, FCMB and LCCI join those of Fidelity Bank, SunTrust Bank, FSDH Merchant Bank, Unity Bank and Citibank to pilot the affairs of their organisations to the next level, we wish them Godspeed and a fruitful tenure,” Mrs. Nwankwo said.
