Anambra State Deputy Governor, Dr. Onyekachukwu Ibezim, has urged mothers to leverage this year’s August Meeting as an opportunity to discuss and contribute to the development and progress of society. Speaking in Mbaukwu, Awka South Local Government Area, Deputy Governor Ibezim highlighted the importance of the August Meeting and emphasized the pivotal role mothers play in society.
Recognizing mothers as foundational pillars of the community, Dr. Ibezim emphasized the need for them to address prevailing challenges, such as moral decline and inadequate child upbringing. He encouraged mothers to take on their responsibilities as shapers of character, builders of homes, and essential support structures in society, thereby preventing further deterioration.
Dr. Ibezim also advised Anambra State mothers to motivate their children to participate in skill acquisition programs facilitated by the administration of Professor Chukwuma Soludo, enabling them to achieve self-sufficiency. Additionally, he urged mothers to dissuade their children from engaging in criminal activities, emphasizing that crime not only harms society but ultimately leads to its degradation, stressing the importance of creating a better living environment for all.
