“Women empowerment is the most critical form of empowerment”

The Senator representing Anambra Central Senatorial District, Uche Ekwunife has described women as untapped reservoir. She said that empowerment of women is empowerment of the society.

Ekwunife said this during her 10th empowerment programme held at Senator Uche Ekwunife Centre Awka. The programme was in line with her drive to improve the living standard of Ndi Anambra as well as ensure that women are empowered to be self-reliant.

The programme which was attended by women across the 326 wards in the state, had the beneficiaries overwhelmed with joy as the widely celebrated federal lawmaker gave out gas cookers, gas cylinders and cash grants to them.

Speaking during the event, Ekwunife noted that women empowerment is the most critical form of empowerment. She stated that when a woman is empowered, a family and by extension the society is empowered.

“I am committed to using my position to enhance the place of women in our society. We need to empower our women to become working housewives, and make not just domestic, but financial contributions to their homes”.

The programme had remarks from some members of Senator Ekwunife campaign organization. The former Chairman of Anambra State Universal Basic Education Board, Dr Rose Nwankwo, in her remarks urged the women to embrace the opportunity to improve their visibility in government by throwing their weight behind Senator Ekwunife.
