In April, Nigeria will host wives of African Presidents, Vice-Presidents and other female leaders for the 2018 African Women Summit.

The summit, which will be chaired by Joyce Banda, Former President of Malawi, is put together by the Coalition of Wives of Presidents and Vice Presidents in Africa (COWAP).

According to the organisers, the summit will be live-streamed to more than three million viewers across the globe.

“The summit will serve as a melting pot of ideas towards achieving peace and development in Africa, anchoring on the four (4) thematic points of COWAP – peace, girl child education, ending hunger and ending poverty,” the organisers said.

“The summit allows participants to identify the greatest barriers to peace and development and formulate sustainable solutions to these challenges, empowering women across the continent to become solution providers to themselves, their communities and the world around them.”

The two-day summit is themed ‘Using Innovative Technology to Solve Africa’s Development Challenges’. It will take place from Saturday, April 21 to 22.
