What Wives Of Southern Governors Agreed On In Abeokuta, Ogun State
The laudable efforts of the Federal Government of Nigeria in reviving our economy is highly appreciated by the Forum as it further drives the passion of the Forum to provide sustainable support to the vulnerable group in our society; women and children as they bear the consequences of any economic challenge.
Against this backdrop, the SGWF in her 5th meeting resolved to address the economic and health issues of women and children in their domains.
Taking a cue from the initiative of our mother and wife of the president of the country, Mrs. Aisha Buhari, “Future Assured”, the Forum wishes to address Polio or Meningitis, which is a recent health challenge currently affecting some states of the southern region.
The economy remains the superstructure of any meaningful development, the Forum therefore also resolved to sustain the momentum of the mental, emotional and economic empowerment of women in their states. In an immediate demonstation of this resolve, over 500 women were given economic tools to galvanize finances that will help stabilize their families. Peaceful co – existence is imperative for the unity of our country, thus the Forum prized the sisterhood spirit that breaks through the ethnic, religious and political party lines that tends to divide us. As mothers and home builders, the effect of this spirit that the Forum generates in us goes a long way to affect our husbands, children and the society at large.
A communique of these resolutions and those of subsequent meetings are to be communicated to the Southern Governors’ Forum for their valued inputs, support and effective implementations.
