NGO hails Ugwuanyi’s collaboration on women empowerment
A Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) in Enugu State, Development Education Centre (DEC), saddled with the responsibility of empowering women towards self-reliance for socio-economic emancipation, has appreciated Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi for his administration’s effective collaboration with the organisation.
DEC expressed gratitude to Ugwuanyi for identifying with its main objective of advocating for women’s right to education and socio-economic empowerment even before he assumed office as governor in 2015.
Speaking when she led a delegation of the central body of women groups working with DEC Enugu with the partner-communities from Enugu, Imo, Abia, Kogi and Benue states, to the Government House, Enugu, on a thank-you visit to Ugwuanyi, the Executive Director, Dr. Cecilia Asogwa, said they are deeply grateful to the governor for the support he has given them since the establishment of the body in 1988.
Asogwa, who was accompanied by the patron of DEC, Beatrice Asogwa, pointed out that through effective collaboration with the Ugwuanyi administration, “we, today, have a quality concrete asphalt road to DEC headquarters at the Independence Layout, Enugu.”
She told the governor: “We are here to thank you, and, at the same time, act in solidarity with your government in Enugu State.”
The DEC Executive Director applauded Ugwuanyi for making Enugu one of the most peaceful and safest states in Nigeria, disclosing that “this has attracted both indigenes and non-indigenes to make Enugu their base and home.”
