The Wife of the Anambra State Governor, and founder Caring Family Enhancement Initiative (CAFE), Mrs. Ebelechukwu Obiano, has enjoined baby mamas to stop throwing away their babies
Mts Obiano, who was reacting to the story of a new born baby recovered on top of a barbed wire fence in Oko, Anamvra state, where it was dumped by a young mother, advised such mothers to keep their babies warm and place them where they could be found unhurt and taken care of..
While describing such girls as recalcitrant young mothers, the Governor’s wife charged them not to discard their new born babies for any reason, as many families were earnestly searching for the fruit of the womb.
She said her CAFE and indeed many good spirited Nigerians were ready to raise such babies in approved orphanages in the state.
Mrs. Obiano expressed relief over the reports that the recovered baby was in a stable condition and responding to treatment.
The Governor’s wife warned girls to abstain from relationships that could lead to unwanted pregnancy.
