Coordinator, assistant coordinator, general secretary, Youth leader, human leader, publicity secretary, Organising secretary & Treasurer are the main structure of the forum in Ikorodu.
“Leadership in the various LCDA’s will be created through the excos and it’s only open to individuals who are ready to perform regardless of their status”, She said “for reasons of competency not all post will be occupied as more members are still coming to join the forum”.
A member Alhaji Lateef insisted that the platform must be legally binding for it not to be hijacked by the island movement and he insisted that the movement must support women more because the men has sofar failed the system.
Another member from the ‘Women In Politics Movement’ Deaconess Victoria Amoniloju urged Hon.

The reason we have shifted the inauguration date from 26th of March to April 2nd 2020 is because we need the pioneer leader Hon. Abdulaziz Babajide Adediron to be available on that day.That is why we have also added the need for members to get our Ankara to make the occasion colourful”, said Hon Fakoya.
