Kebbi 2018 Invitation
My Dear Colleagues,
It is with great pleasure that I write to personally invite you to the upcoming 11th Annual General Meeting and Scientific Conference of our great society; NISONM.
This year our conference for the first time will be holding in Birnin Kebbi, the land of equity, home of LAKE rice, the famous Gwandu kilishi as well as the spectacular Argungu fishing festival.
Kebbi State, like many Northern states has a high neonatal mortality rate and this conference will give us the opportunity to train more health workers, improve life saving skills that will reduce NMR and allow our health workers to network with delegates from across the country and beyond with the hope that we can build links that will be mutually beneficial.
The conference from the 26th-29th of June promises to be an exciting one as we have concluded plans to bring in speakers from Oxford University, Imperial College, the United Nations and many of our respected Nigerian academicians.
They will address the theme for the conference which is “Achieving optimal quality of care for newborn health in Nigeria: the current state” as well as the sub-themes on community based newborn care.
I am happy to offer free, comfortable and secure accommodation to as many interested members as possible. We will also provide safe airport shuttles between Kebbi and Sokoto. Maryam, my S.A can be reached +2347019722246 and is available to assist you.
NISOMN 2018 will be a time to relax, catch up with each other and discover the secrets of Kebbi. Amongst many other pleasurable breaks we have lined up, is a mini fishing festival arranged by the Emir of Argungu Muhammadu Mera just for you.
So what are you waiting for?????
Birnin Kebbi is ready. I am ready. Safe Journey and God’s blessings always.
We welcome you to Kebbi the “Land of Equity” known worldwide for the spectacular Argungu fishing festival, famous “Gwandu Kilishi” and more recently as the rice basket of Nigeria
