By Daniel Ezeigwe
Anambra Governor’s wife, Mrs Nonye Soludo says despite the current economic situation, mothers must not abandon their primary responsibility to home and child raising.
Mrs Soludo stated this while interacting with women leaders of All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA and Anambra State Association of Town Unions, ASATU, at the Governor’s Lodge, Amawbia.
For over one week, the governor’s wife has had meetings with different women groups as she looked to develop a unique framework that would help the women with conversations during the August meetings.
One of such is her interest in healthy living, and how the women can adopt the right approaches to what they eat, their personal health habits and consciousness of their environments.
Addressing the women, Mrs Soludo said that mothers must wake up to current realities threatening the home down to the society by creating the right environment for them to grow.
The governor’s wife who expressed dismay at the level of rot that the society has found itself, appealed to mothers to do more in asking questions about the lifestyles, habits and associations that their children keep.
She stated that despite the current economic situation, no mother has an excuse to abandon her primary role of raising a decent child.
Mrs Soludo also explained that her healthy living project is driving a dietary revolution that looks to reinvent highly nutritious traditional diets that seem to have been abandoned, and asked mothers to be mindful of what they feed their children.
The guest lecturer, Professor Brian Adinma who specializes in obstetrics and gynecology, commended the governor’s wife for making this year’s August interaction a unique one, and preparing women in the right way to go for their annual August meeting.
Professor Adinma who focused on female reproductive health, shared important tips on pregnancy, child birth, family planning, sex selection and menopause.
On agriculture, Mrs Rosaria Ahaeri, a director in the Anambra State Ministry of Agriculture, shared emerging revelations in regenerative agriculture, including tips on using biological compost for farming, and urged the women to eat more of organic food for the sake of their health.
She also asked them to unite against hunger by engaging in subsistence farming, and avoid certain agricultural practices that destroy the environment, including using artificial composts which can cause erosion.
Wife of the deputy governor of Anambra State, Mrs Oluchi Ibezim, Anambra State Commissioner for Women and Social Welfare, Mrs Ify Obinabo, APGA Woman Leader in Anambra State, Mrs Esther Onyekesi, wife of the National Chairman of APGA, Mrs Amara Ezeokenwa, among others, were at the event.
