Rivers State Deputy Governor Dr. Mrs. Ipalibo Harry Banigo has applauded the Medical Women’s Association of Nigeria (MWAN) for being at the cutting-edge in the care of Mothers, Girls and the family.

Dr. Banigo stated this during the Medical Women’s Association of Nigeria (MWAN) Week 2019, Investiture and Award Luncheon at the NMA House in Port Harcourt on Saturday 12th October, 2019.

 According to Dr. Banigo “Right from the time our initiator Dr. Bernadette Korubo started we have not stopped. One of the things we do at the every woman centre at Marine Base which the State Government approved during my tenure as Director of Public Health Services for the use of MWAN is to reach out to the communities and I am happy that MWAN is doing well in that centre it is growing in leaps and bounds.”

 Dr. Banigo who said it is different when you care with the love of a mother disclosed that the women centre is attracting more and more people and all the contagious communities are happy for the services they get there.

The Deputy Governor assured MWAN that the State Government under the watch of Governor Wike would continue to partner with it in the years ahead, noting that the Rivers State observatory on the violence against women and girls 2015 to 2017 where you could get information on violence against our women and girls was actually managed and coordinated by MWAN.
