… …as IGP’s wife visits Mrs. Obiano

WIFE of Governor of Anambra State and founder of Caring Family Enhancement (CAFÉ) initiative, Dr. Mrs. Ebelechukwu Obiano said that her non-governmental organisation will not relent in its support to needy officers and men of Nigerian Police, particularly their wives and children.

  Mrs. Obiano gave the assurance while receiving wife of Inspector General of Nigerian Police Force and National President of Police Officers Wives Association (POWA), Hajara Usman Baba at Governors’ Lodge, Amawbia, yesterday.

  The governor’s wife thanked her guest for havingr their empowerment programme in Anambra State and pledged her support for revived POWA.

  According to Mrs. Obiano, her friendship with Hajara predates the appointment of her husband as the IGP.

  “I am very passionate about anything that concerns children and women and had made effort to engage with POWA and also touch the lives of Police women. I have also through my NGO, CAFE  intervened in areas I can support my husband’s administration. We have empowered almost 6000 women and youths, built 28 houses free for widows as well as 22 toilets in market places with water boreholes to ensure the maintenance of hygiene. It is also interesting that my husband, the governor Anambra State, is also touching lives of the wives of fallen Police Officers by supporting and honoring their late husbands,” she emphasised.

  Earlier while introducing her delegation, Hajara Usman Baba commended Mrs. Obiano for her timely interventions to police officers’ wives in the state, especially those in distress or bereavement.

  “I have known Her Excellency, Mrs. Obiano for a long time. When we came for Police Games, she made us feel at home. She has always assisted our members in Anambra State especially in hours of need. I hope to continue the relationship beyond the office. There was virtually no POWA when we came on board but the passion the IGP has for women actually propelled me and my management team to build up POWA across states to encourage the widows of fallen officers, and the rest of the Police family. My Three-Point Agenda for the association are in the area of welfare, education and health,” she said.
