First Lady of Lagos State, Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu is set to be conferred with the coveted honour of African Iconic First Lady Of The Year at the African Iconic Women awards (AIWRA) 2024. 

This is in recognition of her roles in advancing the growth and development of women and children in her state Lagos and environs.
