According to the former Minister, the conference will examine the subject matter and center discussions on the roles women can play to ensure that peace returns to the country, with the sole aim of starting the process of healing the country.

She lamented that the country had been unnecessarily broken and polarised for a long time across ethnic, religious and political lines, stressing that the group seeks to intentionally close the gap.

While advocating for oneness in Nigeria, Mrs Anenih pointed out that women are the thread that can potentially sew up the country, citing example with herself whose children are all Esan, even hough she is Igbo, likewise many other women married elsewhere different from their ethnic groups.

The conference which will feature the likes of Ngozi Okonjo-Iwela, Oby Ezekwesili, Prof. Chidi Odinkalu, and many other speakers from all over the country, will also address issues around the economy, agriculture and politics.
