The Nigerian Army Officers’ Wives Association (NAOWA), 81 Division Chapter, Lagos, has donated food items to some widows of Nigerian soldiers who died in the insurgency in the North-East of the country.
Mrs Grace Udoh, the President NAOWA Association in the chapter, made the presentation on Monday evening at the Ikeja Cantonment.
She urged the fallen heroes’ wives to be strong and courageous.
“I want to urge you wives of our fallen heroes to be strong, courageous and engage in positive ventures that would create a better life for you and your children in the future.
“You must endeavour to send your children to school, as education is a sure key to success.
“When they are well educated, the chances of child abuse, teenage pregnancy and other criminal tendencies would be reduced, and they will also have the opportunity to contribute meaningfully to our nation,” she said.
