The Student Affairs department of Nile University of Nigeria hosted a program titled “Power of Women” to commemorate the International Women’s Day.  The event featured several high-profile speakers like Mrs. Ummulkulthum Haliru Gwand-Sadiq, Mrs. Maimuna Abubaka, Mrs. Sheikh Nafisa Atta, Ms. Sonaya Aghedo, Mrs. Hajiya Zainab Bina, and Mrs Zainab Abubakar Abdulrasheed.

Delivering the program’s first presentation, Mrs. Ummulkulthum Haliru highlighted the need for women to have smart goals and stop comparing themselves to others. She also admonished women to be financially wise and learn to save and differentiate their needs from their wants when planning expenses. 

Following Mrs. Haliru’s presentation, Mrs. Maimuna Abubakar (CEO of Tozali magazine), in her address, urged women to be committed and passionate in all their endeavours. Subsequently, Mrs. Sheikha Nafisa Atta emphasized the importance of adopting the “nothing is impossible” mentality in the quest for success. According to her, for women to reach the new heights that they seek in the society, their daily mantra must be “ain’t no mountain high enough.”

The program ended with an award presentation session.
