Nonye Soludo, wife of Anambra State governor-elect, has called for sustained awareness to end gender inequality and other related practices in Nigeria and across the globe.
She made the call in a statement to mark this year’s International Women’s Day.

According to her, an inclusive environment that opens up equal opportunities for all genders must first be created to achieve a peaceful and successful world.
Nonye said the theme of this year’s celebration “Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow” captures the inner voice of all women and girls globally who are constantly seeking platforms to establish their potentials.
She also said this year’s theme which focuses on achieving gender equality in the wake of climate change and environmental challenges is a strong reminder of the importance of women and girls to a livable planet.
The governor-elect’s wife said without gender equality today, a sustainable and equal future would be beyond reach.
She also pledged to continue championing the fight against all forms of social, cultural, political and religious practices against children, especially the girl-child.
