Mother’s Day: NIROH congratulates women, calls for commitment to family values


Ndigbo Royal Heritage Worldwide, NIROH, has extended warm felicitations to mothers across the country as they celebrate Mother’s Day. In a joint goodwill message by its President General, Dr. Paul Okoye and the Women’s Leader, Evang. Patience Ozokwor, the duo commended mothers for their relentless role in stabilising homes in spite of the odds occasioned by the dwindling economy and insecurity.

Paul Okoye enjoined mothers to remain committed to the role, which was given to them by nature. “I wish to congratulate all mothers and potential mothers, while using this occasion of Mother’s Day to also remind them of the stabilising role apportioned to them by nature. Recognising that they are the most influential part of any individual’s life, I will also remind them that this enormous influence should be used to shape opinions and characters towards a better society. That is why in NIROH, women are accorded great value and are an important part of our operations towards building a better Igbo land”.

Calling on mothers to show more commitment to family values, the Women’s Leader of NIROH, Evang. Patience Ozokwor, said: “I celebrate today with my fellow women in NIROH, Igbo land and Nigeria. As we celebrate, let us be mindful of our duties as mothers and bear in mind that the success of any society, derives from our success as mothers. We must build our families to have a better society. Against all odds, we must remain steadfast and continue to work and pray for a better Igbo society”.

NIROH, a global mandate initiated with the support and pioneer leadership of late Ikemba Nnewi, Dim Odumegwu Ojukwu is currently at the forefront of a cerebral restoration of Ndigbo. It has members across the major cities of the world.
