“Considering that the current socio-economic state of the population of older persons in Nigeria requires urgent intervention, this strategic summit is an apt and strong call to national action on the rights, care and needs of our older citizens, more so, because the development of a nation is measured by the standard of life of its citizens” – Prof. Tunde Adeniran KJW, OFR, FCPA, former Minister of Education and Ambassador Plenipotentiary to the Federal Republic of Germany, presenting his keynote address at the 2nd National Conference on Ageing, organized by the Coalition of Societies for the Rights of Older Persons in Nigeria (COSROPIN).

The program was organized as an advocacy platform of national consultation on the need for appropriate mainstreaming of the rights and care of older Nigerian compatriots into government policies and actions at both legislative and executive levels. The program was chaired by Senator Ezeajoku (founder, COSROPIN). In attendance were representatives from the Federal Ministry of Women Affairs, Federal Ministry of Humanitarian and Social Welfare, National Centre for Women’s Development, Iyom Josephine Anenih, Dr. Emem Omokaro, serving legislators, and several CSOs including Dewdrop Foundation which was represented by Nneka Acholonu Egbuna (Assistant Programme Coordinator), Mrs. Phebian Motojesi and Blessing Nwabukwu.
