NASHCO chairperson

The chairperson of the Nigerian Association of Hairdressers and Cosmetologists (NASHCO), Ejigbo branch, Mrs Motunrayo Ogundare, who has just been re-elected for a second term has listed plans and projects to be executed in the next four years.

Speaking to ECHONEWS, Ogundare revealed that her new administration would leverage on the number to record greater achievements by wooing more members into the association.

She said the leadership of her executive would carry every member along with the activities of the association while embarking on sensitisation exercises and empowerment projects for all members.

According to her, the administration would ensure the introduction of new members into the association by educating them on the benefits they stand to gain for being part of the association.

She said she is also planning to reach out to the young artisans who had at some point showed interest in the field but did not complete their learning before practising.

She promised to encourage them to get certified ahead of greater opportunities that might still come their way.

In her words: “Basically, we intend inviting experts that would train our upcoming stylists on different beneficial courses such as hair treatment, hair styling, and the like where we expect that they learn something new that they can easily leverage on to become successful in years to come.

“Not only that, we intend to sponsor talented kids abroad to learn cosmetology and they will be expected to come back to teach their peers on how to make shampoo, conditioner, hair cream, hair spray and the like to make them more professional and civilised.

“At some point, we will organise competitions among our apprentices and empower the best students among them which will encourage others to be more focused on what they are learning. We will not only make all these available for our members, but we will also ensure we reach out to those that are yet to join us to convince them on what they stand to benefit if they become part of us.”

Ogundare further informed that her administration would create a cordial relationship with executives at both zonal and state levels for selfless service to be achieved by carrying their superiors along about the happenings in the association in Ejigbo.

She appreciated the efforts of all members that had supported her in the last administration and made themselves available while reaching out to them, saying her success so far was as a result of their help in ensuring stability within the association.

She, however, appealed to all members to key into the new administration’s plan in moving the association forward, noting that the success of the new administration cannot be achieved without the help of the members.
