By Chidimma Okoye :
Uke (Idemili North LGA), Aug. 10, 2019 (MOI) Wife of Governor of Anambra State, Mrs Ebelechukwu Obiano says she sponsored the building of toilets in Eke Uke to promote the dignity of Women.
``I do not think that it is dignifying for women to engage in open defecation in bushes rather than proper toilets,’’ Mrs Obiano said while addressing women during inauguration of the toilets and borehole to serve the toilets.
The facilities were built by her Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) Caring Family Enhancement (CAFÉ) at Eke Uke Market Square, Idemili North Local Government Area (LGA).
Mrs Obiano explained that she had the women folks in mind while sponsoring the toilets because they mainly do the buying and selling in the market so as to help to stop the practice of open defecation.
She said the people in Eke Uke and environs would now be able to assess clean water that would invariably enhance hygiene.
Mrs Obiano, then, called
on all and sundry to utilise the facilities appropriately put it into good use
in a sustainable manner. (MOI)
