The Managing Director of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), Hadiza Bala Usman has advised women to balance work with family life by devoting quality time to family free of any office activities.

She, however, cautioned women not to nurse fears of starting small as such venture would always blossom to their advantage when they remain focused on the core issues.

Ms Bala Usman who was speaking at a round table cum-luncheon organized by Women in Management Business and Public Service (WIMBIZ), encouraged career women to leave their comfort zones and face their fears, even when such fears may be real as experienced by everyone. She noted it was important to face the fears in order to overcome them.

At the event, which took place at the Bon Hotel Stratton in Abuja over the weekend with the theme “Freeing Yourself from Fear”, Ms Bala Usman also encouraged women not to allow limitations in any form to stop them from their desired goals.

The Managing Director also charged women to pursue and remain in their dream jobs and not stay tied to jobs not giving them fulfillment.

Fielding questions, Ms Bala Usman advised women not to force people to follow their steps adding that “your integrity and credibility will stand you out that such will automatically generate followers for you.”

As part of the highlights of the event, 15 new members from across the country were inducted as associates of the organization by Olubunmi Aboderin-Talabi, the Chairperson of WIMBIZ.
