The Governor of the state, Rt. Hon Francis Nwifuru, announced this at the 2024 International Women’s Day held at the Christian Ecumenical Centre, Abakaliki.

The governor listed the most frequent reasons for divorce as being disobedience, incorrect application of feminism philosophy, and supremacist fights among women.

While reflecting on African rich heritage and cultural values, the Ebonyi leader frowned at the ongoing campaign for gay rights in some parts of the world.

He called on the women never to bow to pressure from the winds of modernity and constitute themselves as burdens to their husbands.
