Speaking of the coming event, the Woman Leader of the IIU Lagos branch. Mrs Ifesinachi Izuekwe, said women of the community have been supporters of their husbands and it was in that spirit that the women decided to organise the cultural dance to support in the completion of the hall which has languished for 40 years.
She said it was not that the women want to take the responsibility of the men in the community, but this will also raised the consciousness of the men, youths and everybody in the community to live up to the expectation and focus more on the development of the community.
Also the IIU Men’s Wing, Lagos branch, Pharmacist Jeff Nzekwe lauded the project and said it has shown that women are the backbone of their husbands and said such has been the practice in the community in the past.
