At the 2016 edition of the annual Hall Week of Moremi Hostel, University of

Lagos (UNILAG), the internationally acknowledged Woman of Courage and

prominent activist, Dr. Joe Okei-Odumakin was specially honored.

Among the queue of educating, social, entrepreneurial and motivational

programs, the Moremi Hall had hosted a public speaking and inter-hostel

debating competition. The competition showcased intellectuals among

students, who debated on spontaneously assigned topics at the hall week

event on Monday.
As an interesting addition, the event included a special recognition

session for the prominent activist, Dr. Joe Okei-Odumakin, who was

presented with Amazon of The Year Award. The award, organizers of the event

said, was to recognize the role of a prominent woman who has defended the

precious gender against abuse and vulnerability over the years and also

consistently stood as model for younger male and females to emulate.

Presenting the award to Dr. Joe Okei-Odumakin, the Moremi Hall Mistress,

Prof. Virgy Onyene appraised the awardee's commitment to the development of

younger male and females. She commended Dr. Okei-Odumakin for identifying

with students as well as leading an awareness rally tagged “Silence Not

Golden” on the campus, which amplified the voices of students in UNILAG

against abuses.
In her response as the recipient of Amazon of the Year Award, Dr. Joe

Okei-Odumakin commended the participants in the public speaking

competition. She said she had been moved by the display of intellects by

the participants, while also offering prizes to the first, second and third

winner in acknowledgment of their exemplary performances.

She appreciated the organizers for putting up such programs that challenge

students to explore their potentials. Dr. Okei-Odumakin accepted the award,

while also telling some high points of her story to inspire the students,

never to give up on their dreams but to remain steadfast in their visions.
