Soludo’s Wife Hails Establishment of Children, Sexual Offences Court as Major Victory for Anambra Children



By Praise Chinecherem

Wife of the Governor of Anambra State, Mrs Nonye Soludo has described the recent establishment of children and sexual offences court in the state as a major win in the fight to build a safer environment for women and children in the State.

Mrs Soludo, who stated this in Awka, explained that the new court will end legal bottlenecks in tackling sexual and gender-based offences, speed up legal processes for such issues and appropriate decisive sanctions for defaulters. 

“With the rise in reported cases of rape, defilement and abuse of minors and domestic violence against women, the magistrate court will provide solid platform for thorough justice, and help the current administration in Anambra State achieve its vision of enthroning a sane society for every child to thrive,” she noted.

The governor’s wife further praised Commissioner for Women and Social Welfare, Mrs Ify Obinabo who pushed for the project, as well as State Chief Judge, Justice Onochie Anyachebelu for playing key role in the current history and for their glaring commitment to a better Anambra society.

Expressing strong faith in the court’s first Chief Magistrate, Mrs Genevieve Osakwe’s experience and zeal, Mrs Soludo urged her to see the new position as a call to moral service.

It can be recalled that Anambra is second after Lagos State to establish such court in Nigeria.
