Alli Pledges To Take Lagos ALPs To New Levels
-As Outgoing Executives Set Professional Financial Record
The new Chairperson of the Association of Lady Pharmacists (ALPs) Lagos State Chapter, Pharm. (Mrs) Modupeore Sadia Alli, has promised to make meaningful impact on the association, while calling for the collaboration of all lady pharmacists in the state.
Alli, who described the election of her team of executives as a divine mandate, assured all members of the association of quality administration, adding that she and her team would never betray the confidence reposed in them.
Speaking shortly after receiving the key to her office, at the Biennial General Meeting and handing over ceremony of the association which took place on 22 June, 2017, at Lagos PSN Secretariat, Ogudu Road, Alli said: “We have taken this calling as an assignment from God and we promise that with your support and cooperation, we will not let you down. So we appeal to all members in the state to join hands with us and take the affairs of ALPs Lagos State as a Ateam work. We need your support; we need your advice and your contribution to move ALPs forward”.
The new ALPs boss commended the dedication and commitment of her predecessors towards keeping the group together, while requesting for their sustained loyalty to the association.
“We are appealing for regular attendance in meetings, as they say, ‘the more we stand, the stronger we become’. We are calling on ALPians to be more committed in their dealings with the association”, she pleaded.
Delivering her handover speech, outgoing chairman of the association, Pharm. Modupe Ologunagba, congratulated the new executives, while urging them to continue the various ongoing initiatives of the association.
Ologunagba further suggested some tasks for the Alli-led executives. These include: purchase of an association bus for better membership mobilisation and impactful programme outreaches; expansion of office and stable administrative personnel; repackaging of ALPians’ welfare to promote good health, among others.
Applauding the outstanding performance of the outgoing executives, especially in their presentation of a professional financial report, a former chairman of the association, Pharm. (Mrs) Lan Scholatisca noted that the group had created a record for themselves in the history of Lagos ALPs, as they were the first set of executives to forward a professionally written financial report at the end of their tenure.
She noted that the document was a good legacy and could be presented to any corporate body that may want to partner with the association for sponsorship of its programmes and activities, urging the new leaders to learn from them and follow suit.

Omotosho, assistant secretary; Alaya Bidemi, financial secretary; Pharm. Folasade Kolapo, treasurer; Pharm. Hafsah Agbabiaka, welfare officer; Pharm. Oduwole Yinka, assistant welfare officer; Pharm.
