It gives me enormous joy to felicitate the amiable wife of the Executive Governor of Ebonyi state and my dear brother, Her Excellency, Chief Mrs Mary-Maudeline Uzoamaka Nwifuru on the glorious occasion of her birthday celebration on 9th August, 2023.
“The sweet coincidence of your natal anniversary with the epochal celebration of the 2023 Ojiji Izzi New Yam Festival is an indication that our ancestors actually sanctioned and blessed your union with the great son of Izzi Nnodo Ekumenyi, the Executive Governor of Ebonyi state, His Excellency, Right Honourable Francis Ogbonna Nwifuru.
He added, “You are indeed a blessing to your immediate family and the entire state. Through your milk of human kindness you have been a pillar of support to your dear husband and a beacon of hope to the needy.
“It’s common knowledge that within your short stint as the Mother of the state, you have advocated for the rights of women in all ramifications. You have ensured that greater number of women occupy lofty positions in the present administration. It’s under your watch that Ebonyi state had First Female Deputy Governor, First Female Secretary to the State Government and a lot more.
“My prayer is that God Almighty grants you sound health of mind and body, wisdom and the requisite grace to carry out the onerous responsibility of mothering the entire state.
“Once again, accept the assurances of my fervent prayers and the esteemed regards of my lovely family and constituents.
