The message reads in parts “On behalf of the State Executive Council, South-South Grand Patron; Chief Sunny Ibanga, Local Government Coordinators and entire members of Asiwaju Women Cooperative Society, Akwa Ibom State Chapter, I write to congratulate Hon. Olushola Kokumo on her emergence as the new National Coordinator of our noble Association.

“As a core stalwart of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State, our new National Coordinator understands fully the plans of His Excellency, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for the women of Nigeria. It was in line with these plans that the Asiwaju Women Cooperative Society was formed to provide a platform upon which the women would be empowered.

“Having served AWCS and our great Party in different capacities including Local Government Coordinator, Chapter Woman Leader, Sole Administrator, etc, we believe that you shall fit squarely into the shoes of our late National Coordinator and continue from where she stopped.

While we in Akwa Ibom State Chapter can assure you of our maximum cooperation and loyalty throughout your reign, we pray the Almighty God to grant you wisdom and strength to unite all the women in AWCS across all races in Nigeria for the purpose of attaining the objectives for which our noble Association was formed. Once again, congratulations, Our Dear National Coordinator”.
