The 1st Nigerian National Printers Conference in collaboration with Federal Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment took place on 27th November 2018  in Abuja.

I congratulate the organisers of the 1st Nigeria National Printers’ Conference for the wisdom to put this significant event together and for considering me worthy to chair it.

The event was themed The Role of Nigeria Printing Industry in Economic Development & Employment Generation.

This inaugural National Printers’ Conference was convened with the aim of taking the necessary steps to create the kind of printing industry we not only desire but require.

The discussions were centered around issues bordering on how to partner with government to formulate policies that will favor the industry and help government achieve some of it’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

By the special grace of God, my family runs a printing outfit called ‘Digitalreality Print Limited’ so I am also into the printing business.

Printing touches every facet of life as a means of disseminating knowledge and shaping public opinion.


Last Thursday (22nd November 2018)  at the foundation stone laying ceremony of a 250-bed Teaching Hospital which my family and I bequeathed to Osun State University, Osogbo, Nigeria.

The idea for this hospital was borne out of love for children, mothers and humanity in general and for the advancement of medical education. The event was the fulfilment of my pledge to build a Children’s hospital when I was appointed Chancellor by the Visitor to the University, His Excellency, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola.

However, since the University has been given approval to commence its medical school, my husband and I decided to upgrade our donation of the paediatric hospital to a Full-fledged Ultra-Modern Teaching Hospital.

The Facility when completed will consist of a world class:
• Community Health Unit
• Maternity & Neonatal Medicare
• Research and Diagnostic Laboratories
• State of the art operating Theatres
• Cutting edge Diagnostic Imaging, inclusive of C.T Scan
• M.R.I Scanning Facility
• Ultrasound Scanning Facilities 
• X-ray and Radiotherapy Suites
• Lecture rooms
• Necropsy and 
• Morgue

We must do everything in our capacity to ensure that both children and adults have access to timely and qualitative medical services. It is only a healthy nation that is productive, afterall.

Glory be to GOD.
