According to her, “I stand before you today, to declare that the National Centre for Women Development is now a “NEW BORN BABY”, therefore we must nurture it together.

“In this regard, let us stand-up as patriots, to further “nurture” her; to further “protect” her; and to further “develop” her together.

“As joint stakeholders, the Centre is one of our own avenues of contributing directly to Nigeria’s development, and the development of Nigerian women in particular.

“Being a strong advocate of gender equality and women’s rights; under my leadership, the Centre will further synergize and continue to collaborate with all relevant Women Organizations and stakeholders, both nationally and internationally, to ensure that the challenges hindering women emancipation and development are drastically combated.”

Challenging the workforce at the Centre, Bashir noted that “to achieve these goals, all hands must be on deck.

“We all need to continue to remain diligent and passionate with the jobs we are all employed to do.

“We are all here, because Government believed that we have something to offer; first, for the progress of Centre, as well as overall National Development.

“On my part, I will strive as much as possible, to tap all the required resources and ensure that a very friendly and progressive working environment is provided for the teeming work-force, for optimum productivity and greater results to be achieved; particularly, in the area of Internal Revenue Generation (IGR).”

The NCWD pledged that she will “work towards consensus with all segments of society including relevant government agencies, financial institutions of which the Central Bank is key, international organizations such as the UN-Women, European Union, ECOWAS, and civil society amongst others.

“We will work towards deepening women engagement in politics especially as we head towards 2023 general elections.”
