“Her Excellency in her motherly love empowered women and the less privileged in the state which has made them self-sustaining and meaningful members of the society.

“During the last Christmas period, she visited the Alex Ekwueme-Federal Teaching Hospital (AE-FETHA) Abakaliki among others and distributed food items, cash, among others to patients and others in need.

“Women in the state should toe this line and be positively engaged especially in entrepreneurial ventures which the state government has made accessible to the people.

“When conflicts are eliminated and peace guaranteed in the family, the larger society will experience peace and be more secure.

“Crime will drastically reduce because individuals will be products of peaceful and harmonious homes with regard for human life and rights of others.

“I also urge women to support the administration of Gov. David Umahi as it has developed the state’s infrastructure and adequately empowered the citizens among other strides.
