The International Women's Day is a day set aside by the United Nations to globally celebrate the social, economic and cultural achievements of women, as well as celebrate gender equality. The theme for this year 2020 is “Each For Equal: An equal world is an enabled world.”

I want to use this medium to challenge women. Imo women, in particular, to use their potentials to press forward holistic developments by bringing to the fore their intellectual and motherly endowments, and by so doing, moderate the excesses of humanity.

I enjoin women to raise the bar of moral rectitude by inculcating the right moral values in their children in discouraging cultism, promiscuity, indecent dressing, child trafficking among other vices.

My administration is gender-friendly. Going by the appointments made so far, I have given women a pride of place in the government of the State and I'm committed to carrying more women along in governance.

Intellectually endowed females are assets in the socio-economic agenda of the state, and we shall encourage them to be equal partners in the task of Reconstructing, Rehabilitating and Recovering Imo state".
