The wife of Enugu State Governor, Mrs. Monica Ugwuanyi, has thanked women of the state, especially the Enugu Women Prayer Network (EWPN) for their prayers and support for Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi’s administration since 2015.
Mrs. Ugwuanyi, who spoke while flagging off this year’s August meeting in Enugu, stressed that women of the state have been outstanding in their support through prayers and effective participation in the programmes and policies of state government and that of local councils.
Disclosing that the theme of the August meeting is ‘Women, The Home, Peace and Bridge Builders,’ the governor’s wife stated that the yearly event “in Igbo land represents the socio-economic and cultural development initiative of women to deliberate and proffer solutions to developmental issues concerning their homes, communities and the state.”
Mrs. Ugwuanyi urged the women to take home all they have learnt from the event and focus on providing capacity building, skill acquisition, income generating engagements and participating in financial contributions such as ‘isusu’ that would boost their businesses and other sources of livelihood.
Pointing out that this year’s flag-off of the August meeting will be the last she will attend as the wife of the governor, Mrs Ugwuanyi, who appreciated the great love she shares with women of the state, advised them to love themselves, embrace peace, practice forgiveness, share gifts and positive ideas as they go home for the yearly event, adding: “Let the people in the rural areas feel your presence in a positive way and appreciate your coming home during this August return.”
