Last week, Omowunmi Akinnifesi honoured an august invitation by the Deputy Governor of Lagos State Mrs. Orelope Adefulire. The former Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria and Lagos Environmental Ambassador met with the Deputy Governor in her office. The visit was in continuation of Omowunmi’s work to bring women, especially younger women in Lagos State, in touch with opportunities for self-development and empowerment, which has been a focus of her work since 2008. The Deputy Governor was visibly gladdened by Ms. Akinnifesi’s visit, noting her “passion and resilience for women, as well as a track record of capacity to empower and encourage young up and coming women in the state and in Nigeria as a whole.” She reaffirmed her commitment and will to support Omowunmi’s projects, and outlined areas of immediate and mid-term collaboration. The Deputy Governor thanked Ms. Akinnifesi for her time and her visit, after which photographs were taken, and collaborations are now actively on-going between Omowunmi Akinnifesi and the office of her Excellency, the Deputy Governor of Lagos State.
