Mrs Betty Ayanwu-Akeredolu, wife of Gov. Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State, has rallied for the involvement of wives of traditional rulers in ensuring inclusive maternal and child healthcare delivery.
She said: “The Ministry of Health should make use of the untapped resources in the lives of wives of our traditional rulers in improving maternal and child health.
“We are mobilising all available women resources, including wives of our traditional rulers, because their position is respectful in our communities.
“This will help in improving the health of children and their mothers in our communities,” Ayanwu-Akeredolu said.
She also said she was happy that issues relating to maternal and child health services were being implemented and taken to the grassroots.
