Wife of Ondo State Governor Arabirin Betty Anyanwu – Akeredolu, has assured Ore community in Odigbo Local Government area in Ondo State of development before the end of their administration.
Mrs Akeredolu gave the assurance in Ore while speaking at the thanksgiving Service of Hon. Mrs Eucharia Nwamara’s appointment as the Supervisor for Works and Housing in the local government.
She said that the community could be used as a yardstick to measure their administration’s performance because it is the gateway to so many states in Nigeria.
The First Lady noted that the Akeredolu led administration meant well for the state and its people adding that Governor Akeredolu joined politics for sincerity of purpose.
” Ore is a gateway to other States, therefore for anybody who wants to measure the performance of this administration when you come to Ore hopefully by the end of this first tenure you will know, yes indeed Akeredolu has plans for Ore.
But you have to be patient and keep supporting this Government so that our vision for Ore will come to reality”.
Mrs Akeredolu, who is the founder of Breast Cancer Association of Nigeria( BRECAN), urged women to always check their breasts and should make complaint to the organisation or at any health facility if they noticed anything.
” We are targetting health of mothers and children in the state. You can reach us or nearest health facility so that women do not die because they do not have money.
” That is why BRECAN is raising money to sensitise and cater for those with breast cancer issues.”
” There is hope for women. Therefore, they should come out.”
“We are also partnering with wives of traditional rulers tagged “Oloris connection” , so that they can be good access in bridging the gaps in healthcare, particularly as it concerns our women,” she said.
She, therefore, commended the celebrant for her hard work and resolute principle saying her choice as a supervisor of works and housing was highly supported by men and women folks.
Also speaking, Mr Wilfred Onyema, the leader of Igbos in the local government area, thanked the state governor for choosing an Igbo woman, the first of its kind in the state.
Onyema promised that Igbo community would continue to support the state government because the community had an outstanding voting strength.
The Igbo leader, however, decried the deplorable state of roads in the community, asking the state governor to do something urgently.
Earlier, the celebrant, Nwamara, noted that she was delighted to be associated with initiatives of the state governor to bring the desired change in the state.
She added that there was hope for the state, which she said had been disappointed for long by past administrations.
The Supervisor for Works and Housing applauded the state First Lady for her great impacting innovations such as solar empowerment programme for girls, BRECAN initiative among others.
