In a week-long series of meetings, Anambra Governor’s wife, Mrs. Nonye Soludo, engaged with women leaders from the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) and Anambra State Association of Town Unions (ASATU) at the Governor’s Lodge, Amawbia. Addressing the women, Mrs. Soludo stressed that despite economic challenges, mothers must remain steadfast in their essential duty of nurturing the home and raising children.
Mrs. Soludo’s discussions with various women’s groups aimed to establish a unique framework for constructive conversations during the upcoming August gatherings. One of her key focuses is promoting healthy lifestyles among women, encouraging them to adopt beneficial dietary practices, prioritize personal well-being, and develop a heightened awareness of their surroundings.
Expressing concern about societal issues, Mrs. Soludo urged mothers to take proactive steps in fostering an environment conducive to growth and development. She called for increased vigilance in monitoring their children’s choices, habits, and associations to counteract negative influences.
Despite prevailing economic conditions, Mrs. Soludo asserted that no mother should neglect her fundamental responsibility of nurturing morally upright children. Furthermore, she introduced her initiative promoting a dietary revolution, aimed at revitalizing nutritious traditional diets that have been overlooked. Mrs. Soludo implored mothers to be conscientious about the nutritional value of the food they provide to their children.
Guest lecturer Professor Brian Adinma, an expert in obstetrics and gynecology, praised Mrs. Soludo’s efforts in making this year’s August interaction distinctive. He equipped women with essential insights on topics such as pregnancy, childbirth, family planning, sex selection, and menopause.
Addressing agricultural concerns, Mrs. Rosaria Ahaeri, a director in the Anambra State Ministry of Agriculture, shared revelations in regenerative agriculture. She provided guidance on using biological compost for farming, encouraged the consumption of organic food for better health, and advocated for sustainable farming practices to combat hunger and prevent environmental degradation.
