Mrs. Iyoha emphasized on the importance of women in the society, as they play the important role of supporting their spouses by providing valuable advice, prayers and the needed encouragement, urging them to ensure that their husbands have a conducive atmosphere to work in order to deliver on their campaign promises to the people of Esan Central.
According to Mrs Iyoha, “Our husbands cannot do it all alone. They need our utmost support and encouragement and I believe that with our prayers and support, they will succeed and make this Local Government great again”.
“So my dear sisters, I want to appeal to you all, as wives and mothers to join hands with our husbands, in moving this Local Government forward. Campaign periods are over. The expectations are high. It is time to deliver on electoral promises made”.
Mrs. Iyoha continued, “so, I want to appeal to you all to align with the vision of our husbands. Advise them where and when necessary and see to it that they deliver on their electoral promises to the people. It is our duty to ensure that our husbands do not fail the people of Esan Central, and by God’s grace, they will succeed”.
The Wife of the Chairman, Mrs. Ruth Iyoha assured them of her willingness to work with them, share ideas and compare notes as a way of ensuring that development gets to every part of Esan Central, with a special focus on women and children.
