Ukpa Ewa | Feb.11, 2022 

AWKA, Wife of the Governor of Anambra State and Founder of Caring Family Enhancement Initiative(CAFE) Dr. Ebelechukwu Obiano has received an award of excellence from a socio-political women group Anambra Women of Peace and Growth Initiative.

The group, which has members across the 21 local government areas of Anambra State, is one of the frontline women groups that played a key part in last year's governorship election in the State.

Presenting the award to the Governor's wife, who was represented by the Project Manager of Caring Family Enhancement Initiative, CAFE, and Deputy Chief Press Secretary to Governor Willie Obiano, Mr. Emeka Ozumba, the leader of the women group, Mrs. Ngozi Orjiakor said that the award was deserved given the tremendous role that the governor's wife played in social services, including constant reach outs to Anambra women in the eight years of her husband's administration.

Mrs. Orjiakor also noted that Anambra women heryed Mrs. Obiano's appeal to vote for the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) and its candidate, Professor Chukwuma Soludo in the last election because they took her standpoint as a solemn call depictive of a mother who would always want the best for her children.

Accepting the award, the Governor's wife conveyed her joy at the honor and reminded the women that though her husband's official tenure in office is due to exhaustion soon, she would continue to stick around to do her works of charity.

She thanked them for voting right during the election and urged them to give similar support as they had always given to her to the wife of the incoming governor, promising them that her successor would continue on the right path.

Mrs. Obiano also praised the bravery of Anambra women, stating that throughout her husband's time in office, they had always given her the maximum support and replicated her affiliation with them with pure love.
