Good Health Is The Pathway To Everything In Life – Bolanle

Women in Lagos State has been advised by Bolanle Ambode, the wife of the Lagos State governor, to speak against domestic violence and child abuse.

The statement was made known during the Lagos Women’s Forum, which was organised to target the issues of women’s health and recurring social vices in the society.

At the forum, with the theme, ‘Woman Your Health, Your Social Environment,’ Ambode noted that good health was a part way for every other thing.

She said, “Good health is the gateway to everything. To have good health, we need to take care of our body, mind and soul.

It is when we have good health that we can run around for business and engage in other activities.

While condemning the spate of social vices in the state, Ambode urged the women to voice out their discontent with domestic violence, child abuse, rape and teenage pregnancy.

They are barbaric and unacceptable; women must know their rights under the law and be vocal voices for their own cause,” she added.

Dr Idiat Adebule, the state Deputy Governor, while speaking at the event, said the forum provided a platform for women to say “enough” to challenges they were facing.

We should no longer be stereotyped into silence but become vocal advocates for an improved health delivery system and social justice for women in Lagos State and the country,” she said.
