The governor said he was proud of working and associating with some of Anambra’s brightest women as members of his cabinet and other areas while thanking them for rendering selfless service to the State and society.

“I appreciate the hard work and dedication of women all over the world, particularly Anambra women who are unrelenting in their pursuit of an excellent society.

“I promise continued commitment to promoting gender equality, adherence to women’s rights and women participation in governance,” he said.

Soludo called on Anambra women to come out en masse to vote for the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in the March 11 State House of Assembly election, for continued development.
