Gov Nwifuru Sets Out 130m To Empower Indigent Women In Ebonyi

Ebonyi State Government is to empower 130 indigent Women to the tune of One Million Naira each

The Governor of Ebonyi State, Rt. Hon Francis Nwifuru announced this at the 2024 International Women's Day held at the Christian Ecumenical Centre, Abakaliki.

The governor identified disobedience, wrong application of feminism ideology and supremacist struggles among women as the commonest causes of divorce.

While reflecting on African rich heritage and cultural values, the Ebonyi leader frowned at the ongoing campaign for gay rights in some parts of the world.

He called on the women never to bow to pressure  from the winds of modernity and constitute themselves as burdens to their husbands.

He thanked his wife, Chief Mrs.  Uzoamaka Nwifuru for establishing the Better Health for Rural  Women, BERWO, a platform, he acknowledged, has brought hope to the rural and indigent women.

" I am delighted to announce to us that BERWO is living in accordance with the philosophy behind its establishment.On this International Women’s Day, she stands as an inspiration to all of us "

Governor Nwifuru commended the President's wife, Sen .Oluremi Tinubu for initiating various social programs on the Renewed Hope Initiative, describing it as laudable.
On her part, the wife of the Governor, Mrs Uzoamaka Nwifuru said her foundation is keenly committed to investing in Ebonyi women by empowering them and eliminating all forms of violence against women and children.

"The inclusion of women in these vital areas of Governance and administration at various levels, is a testament of the truth that women are catalysts for progress,  in fact, no other State is on such a speedy wave of development like Ebonyi State. And so, I appreciate very deeply, my darling husband, Father and Governor of Ebonyi State, His Excellency, Rt. Hon. Francis Ogbonna Nwifuru."
