I see this gathering as a gathering of women to come together and discuss development issues. I also see this gathering as a celebration of the resourcefulness of womanhood.
“It is important because it is a rare opportunity for local people to come together to dialogue the way forward for our society.
We women are building bridges for peace in the country. I also promise to give my own support in the development of humanity.”
Speaking also, the wife of the Imo state governor, Nneoma Rochas Okorocha, said that the needed transformation in the country would be archived if all women acquire education.
She said: “As already stated, women are indispensable group in the development of any nation and fundamental instrument for transforming the society into a better one as they accelerate the economic, religious and socio-political orders.
“Indeed, God in his infinite wisdom endowed women with the gift of motherhood, a great potential that makes them special specie.
It is a truism that the world would be incomplete and will figuratively have an insipid taste if women do not exist in it.
“Specifically, transformation needed will be possible, if education is attained by all women.”
