Wife of the Rivers State Governor, Justice Eberechi Nyesom-Wike has said women’s “positive roles” form the platform for the development of the society.
“All women have been through a lot as they strive to build the society. Our contributions to societal development cannot be underestimated.
“I belong to the kitchen, I belong to the living room and I belong to every room created by God. So also other women. We are created by God to do more.
In my own case as a judicial officer, I also belong to the courtroom. Other women belong to different rooms, depending on their professional calling.”
She spoke on Sunday at the 10th Biennial Diocesan Women’s Guild Conference Service of Anglican Diocese of the Niger Delta North at Saint Thomas Anglican Church in Diobu, Port Harcourt.
She added: “Women are very important to the development of any community. They form a larger percentage of the workforce that keeps the society.”
Justice Nyesom-Wike urged women to be prayerful.
