 THE IZON LADIES ASSOCIATION (ILA) STORY

The Izon Ladies Association was formed in 1977 as a result of the need for educated Izon (Ijaw) ladies to come together to promote the welfare of the Izon tribe, spread across six States of the Federation of Nigeria namely: Ondo, Edo, Delta, Bayelsa, Rivers and Akwa Ibom (there are 44 clans of the Ijaw tribe in Nigeria)

The Founder of the association is Mrs. Jane Alek, who was then a Senior Police Officer; she later retired as a Deputy Commissioner of Police. It was she who sought out a few educated and enlightened Izon ladies of like minds to start the Association. The inaugural meeting of the Association was held on Sunday, the 9th of October, 1977. Since then till date the monthly meetings of the Association has been held every 2nd Sunday of the month.
