The wives of top government functionaries and other top female officials in Nigeria say they will strive to enhance the image of the country by paying more attention to their public conduct and security.

The wives of the government officials made this collective resolution at the end of a three-day seminar on protocol and security, which Senator Oluremi Tinubu, CON, First Lady of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, had convened in Abuja, FCT.

Busola Kukoyi, Senior Special Assistant  (SSA) to the First Lady, in a statement issued at the weekend, disclosed after eight papers delivered by experts on security, protocol, etiquette, improved public conduct and diplomatic relations, participants in the three-day seminar take stock.

The statement noted: “For many of the participants who cut across former First Ladies of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Members of the National Assembly, Wives of NASS Members, Wives of Governors and former Governors, Female Deputy Governors, Ministers, Wives of Ministers, Wives of Service Chiefs among others, the 3-day seminar was an eye opener for them, especially as it relates to security issues.”

The media aide also stated the participants expressed appreciation to the First Lady for building their capacity as role models and image makers for the country.

“With the First Lady and former First Ladies, Turai Yar’Adua and Dame Patience Jonathan making inputs, the session recalled some of the lessons learnt during the seminar, particularly those that dwelt on the need for cultural intelligence, security awareness, and proper conduct among participants and other women on the social media,” the statement said.

Kukoyi further disclosed that a meet-and-greet session by the convener of the seminar, First Lady Tinubu set a relaxed tone day, as participants availed themselves of the opportunity to interact with the Nigerian First Lady and share ideas on diverse issues.

The gathering further presented the opportunity to view the video on the “Every Home a Garden” competition by the Renewed Hope Initiative (RHI), an Initiative of the Senator Oluremi Tinubu.

The statement said that the competition, which is open to every woman from all the States of the Federation, including the FCT, entails their planting a garden at home whereby the harvest can provide food on their table and enough to give their neighbours.

The SSA to the First Lady explained that the winner of the competition, which will be announced December 2024, has a prize money of N20 million.

The three-day seminar on Protocol and Security rounded off with the presentation of Certificates of Participation to over 800 participants, stated Kukoyi.
