A conscience-driven women group, the Intellectual Women of Good Governance says good leadership is synonymous with global peace and unity.
It further posites that persons who distinguished themselves in various capacities of governance or leadership whether traditional or democracy, remain the salt of the world, tonic for peace and oneness through Christ Jesus. The Founder/President of the group Lolo Amaka Chiegena made these assertions while speaking with journalists at the Association’s Head Office situated opposite Regina Pacis Parish, Ihioma, Orlu, ahead of their-one Day Seminar/Award Ceremony slated for Wednesday, February 28, 2018.
Lolo Chiegena informed that the Association was founded on love and is aimed at giving succor, no matter how small, to the less privileged, hence the motto “Touch A Soul Today”.
She further said that there is correlation between good governance or leadership and a healthy, well organized society. According to her, a bad society could emerge when leadership is corrupt and insensitive, hence it becomes incumbent on women or mothers to always pray for good leadership at all times and levels.
Intellectual Women of Good Governance, our reporter gathered, was formed by women across the 27 local government areas of Imo State, who have a common understanding of what purposeful leadership could do in building a good society, hence as mothers they have the traditional obligation to help sustain it by making some inputs, sacrificing a little to put smiles on others. On how the organization sustains its charity operations, Lolo Chiegena said they operate on self sponsorship, even as she stated that individuals, governments and any other charity outfit could consult the Intellectual Women of Good Governance (l.W.G.G) to reach the grass root people who may need empowerment from those who are well to do. Lolo Chiegena called on government to partner with the NGOs for quick contact with the people, In line with the association’s penchant for acknowledging good and selfless service, it has drawn up a programme to recognize and encourage good leaders who have distinguished themselves in the service of mankind.
