From Aloysius Attah, Onitsha


Senator representing Anambra Central in the National Assembly, Senator Dr Victor Umeh has called for more politically inclusive roles and improved welfare for the women in the Nigerian society.

Senator Umeh who made the call in his message to the women on the International Women’s Day celebration noted that the statement “Empower a woman, empower a community” is not only literally correct but a knowledge that when fully implemented, would help rid the society of negative vices such as youth restiveness, insecurity and hunger.

The Distinguished Senator while saluting the noble women within the Anambra Central Senatorial District which he represent and as well, the entire Women of Nigeria on the very thoughtfully created occasion joined his voice in calling for improved welfare for the Women whom he said obviously work very hard for the sustenance of our nation and play pivotal roles in maintaining good morals and decency in the homes and society in general.
