The Nigerian Institute of Public Relations (NIPR) FCT chapter has elected Hajiya Maryam Sanusi as the first female chairman to take charge of the body. She will be at the helm of its affairs for the next two years.

Addressing the media on Tuesday in Abuja after inauguration as the 10th chairman of the chapter, Hajiya Maryam said the new position was a trust which she would handle professionally in the overall interest of the institute and the profession.

Sanusi emphasized that her emergence as the first female chairman of the flagship chapter after almost three decades of its existence was evidence that the institute believes in women’s capability to lead, adding that the trust was an honour she would carefully manage for the common good of all.

Sanusi, a Deputy Director Information and  spokesperson of the Federal Roads Maintenance Agency (FERMA), pointed out that “the burden of relevance lay on the capacity of members,” adding that her administration would address the issue of capacity building among members to equip them with requisite skills that would prepare them to tackle the challenges facing the Public Relations industry.
