I will renovate dilapidated Women Development Centre — Ebo

Mary-Maudline Nwifuru, the wife of the Governor of Ebonyi State, has pledged to revive the dormant Women Development Centre in the state. 

The commitment was expressed during a courtesy visit by officials from the Civil Defence Officers Wives Association to her office in Abakaliki on Tuesday.

Nwifuru emphasized that the skill acquisition centre at the Women Development Centre would play a crucial role in empowering women-led community pressure groups, providing them with knowledge, resources, and skills to address social injustices impacting women and children.

According to her, the reactivation of the centre will improve the livelihood of women and youths for a better society.

She urged them to continue to embrace peace in their respective environments and engage in positive work to improve the status of their families.

The Chairperson of CDOWA, Josephine Elijah, stated that the association planned to establish a self-defence academy, where primary and secondary school children would be taught basic self-defence techniques and security consciousness.

Elijah added that the association’s major objective was to bring officers’ wives to harness their potential.

“This is imperative owing to the rise of rape, abduction and sexual harassment in the society,” Elijah said.
