Wife of Ekiti State Governor, Dr Olayemi Oyebanji has counselled businesswomen and entrepreneurs in the state to adopt networking with one another, to enhance the growth of their businesses.

Dr Oyebanji advised in Ado Ekiti at a one-day seminar and inauguration of Ado City Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture NAWORG.

The First Lady said women networking with one another would enable them to share experiences and gain new perspectives on managing their businesses.

According to the First Lady, women in business are mostly confronted with various challenges centered on money and necessary resources needed for their business to thrive hence the need for the seminar.

“Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about various topics, such as identifying profitable business opportunities, accessing financing, disseminating business knowledge, and raising awareness among local businesses.

“Participants will network with other women entrepreneurs, share experience, and gain new perspectives on managing their businesses.” She added.

She, therefore, encouraged the beneficiaries to take advantage of the resources provided and leverage the networking opportunities to build their businesses.

The convener of the event, Dr Abimbola Oni said the NACCIMA Business Women Group (NAWORG) was created purposely to coordinate the activities of women-owned businesses within the chamber.

“Today’s programme is arranged in fulfilment of our core objective which mainly is to encourage and facilitate women’s participation in commerce and governance, identify profitable business and market opportunities for members and assist members to access loans and disseminate business information.”

Dr Margaret Fagboyo in a lecture delivered in line with the theme of the Seminar “Importance of Money Management and Guide Against Business Decline ” encouraged participants to always have a good Budget plan which they must stick strictly to and Set Financial goals to enable them to make more income and save for the raining days.

She urged them to always ensure protection against emergencies, invest wisely in profitable offers and avoid debt being mindful of loans they take, especially the ones that eat deep into savings.

In their preliminary talks, the representative of the Central Bank of Nigeria at the event, Mr Kola Oyedokun and his counterpart from the Bank of Industry, Mr Williams Olorunfemi urged participants to obtain loans and get what it takes for their businesses to strive.
