ANAMBRA WOMEN’S SUMMIT: SOLUDO’S WIFE INSISTS ON PROPER PARENTING

REPORTER: UCHE NDEKE

Women have been enjoined to be agents of peace and solution providers at all times.

The Wife of the Anambra State Governor, Mrs. Nonye Soludo, gave the advice while interacting with women during 2023 Women Summit at Professor Dora Akunyili Women Development Center, Awka.

According to Mrs. Soludo, as the women prepare for August meeting in their various communities, it has become expedient for them to put the issue of proper parenting in the front burner.

This, she said, was because of the many societal ills and moral decadence in the society traced to poor parenting, especially women abandoning their family roles of inculcating values in their wards.

Mrs. Soludo, who expressed bemoaned high rate of sexual and gender based violence as well as abuses in the society, told the women to go back to their motherly roles in the interest of the state and the nation at large.

Also, the Chief Magistrate of Anambra Children, Sexual and Gender based Violence Court, Ms Genevieve Osakwe, described women as an important factor in the realization of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations.

In a remark, the Commissioner for Women and Social Welfare, Mrs. Ify Obinabo, commended the present administration of Professor Chukwuma Soludo and his wife for making the issues of Women and Children a top priority.

Mrs. Obinabo noted that the Ministry would no doubt continue to empower and enlighten the rural women on their rights and the need for them to be agents of change desired by all.

The theme of the 2023 Anambra Women Summit is “Women, Agents of Change for Sustainable Development.”
