Listen to article

Wife of the Governor of the Anambra State, Dr Nonye Soludo has appealed to women to get involved in politics to change the dynamics and achieve democratic governance in the country.

Soludo made this call in Awka when she hosted female health workers to celebrate the 2024 International Women’s Day marked on the 8th of March every year.

The Eastern Updates reports that International Women’s Day is to acknowledge the social, economic, cultural, and political contributions of women as well as a call to action for gender equality.

This year’s commemoration had the theme: – ‘Invest in Women: Accelerate Progress’.

According to the governor’s wife, getting involved in politics would help women mobilize the political will and resources to address existential issues faced by women in society.

It is sad that women are still dealing with cultural issues like female genital mutilation, societal pressure, molestation, battery, abuses, stigma and short-changing rules.

“We have a big role to play in addressing these problems and achieving the desired results. But we cannot play that role if we do not get involved in politics.

“The era is gone when politics is seen as a dirty game or men-only affair. Women can change the dynamics. We certainly can, so that we can be actively involved in key decisions that affect us,” she said.

She charged young women to emulate women who have broken high glass ceilings to make historical marks on national and global record books.

“You, too, can. Being a woman gives you that extra motivation to think big, dream big, and achieve big. Remember that there is never a limit to what you can achieve as a woman.”

She also called on the female health workers to champion Healthy Living culture in their homes, workplaces and communities.

Mrs Soludi hailed the present administration for investing in women through the free education policy and free antenatal and delivery service in the state.

According to her, a livable and prosperous homeland cannot be achieved without the vision, brilliance, and tenacity of great women.
