Mrs. Obiano made the promise when she joined the women at the 2016 August meeting in the course of her visits to similar women groups in communities across the state. The governor’s wife also assured the women that their appeal for construction of Igboezunu Ivite Aguleri access road and request for electricity will be brought to the attention of the government for consideration in order to ease the suffering of the people of the area. She however told them that she is aware that government’s attention to roads across the state will continue in earnest once the rains subside.
Said Mrs. Obiano, “it is a thing of joy that you are meeting to discuss how to advance the progress of your church and community. It is also heartwarming that similar meetings are ongoing in most communities and thankfully, the peace and security achievement made possible by our governor has created the enabling environment that can only bring development to our towns and the whole state.”
The governor’s wife appealed to the women to continue in their support for the efforts of the governor and his team so that they can sustain the achievements in agriculture, good roads and infrastructure like the Awka flyover, quality education for the youths and ensure the successful completion of the N20million project earmarked for each of the 179 communities in the state.
Furthermore, Mrs. Obiano informed Igboezunu women that her NGO Caring Family Enhancement Initiative (CAFÉ) is a vehicle for empowerment of women especially indigent widows, the less privileged and promotion of the total well-being of the family. She enumerated some of the projects by CAFÉ including Housing for Indigent Widows, construction of market toilets in rural communities, provision of water bore holes and various skills acquisition training which have given over two thousand women means of daily bread and called on them to take advantage of the programmes.
Earlier, the President of the organization Mrs. Blessing Udogu described governor Obiano as God sent to Ndi Anambra for providing security in the state which has made various ceremonies and meetings possible without any form of threat to the citizens, and promised the support of her members to his administration.
Mrs. Udogu also appealed for assistance to construct a house for their reverend Pastors, access road and provision of electricity to the area to ease their suffering. In the same vein, Mrs. Ukwuoma Nweke in a vote of thanks, commended the governor’s wife for her benevolence and appreciated the governor for regular payment of salaries and gifts of rice to civil servants every end of year and wished them a smooth transition to second term in office.
