The Deputy Governor of Imo State, Prince Eze Madumere congratulates the Wife of Imo State, Ugo Nneoma Nkechi Okorocha, other Nigerian Mothers as Christians of Anglican and Catholic faiths all over the world simultaneously celebrate Mothers' Day on Sunday, March 26, 2017.

In a press release signed by his Special Assistant on Media, Uche Onwuchekwa, Prince Madumere while congratulating mothers reminds them of their important role in Nation Building.

Speaking further, he describes Mothers as major partners in determining the quality of citizens in terms of moral standing any nation produces, saying that Mothers’ roles in character-molding of the children are unequal.

He therefore charged Mothers to be deep in the knowledge of God’s Words and Will since it will influence what they teach the children, adding that it is usually difficult for children to deviate from the way they have been trained even when they grow old.

According to the release, Prince Madumere also called on husbands to love their wives and consider them as strategic partners towards reaching their goals. He also enjoined Mothers to be submissive to their husbands as bible has instructed, observing that peace and love at home make a stable society.

He therefore called on Christians to reflect on the role of mothers, their challenges and find ways to encourage with the poor ones among them especially the widows, calling on all to emulate the effort of the wife of the Governor, Nneoma Nkechi Okorocha who has put smiles on the face of the widows through her “She Needs a Roof” Project.
