Wife of Rivers State Governor, Lady Valerie Fubara has advised parents to devote more time to inculcate the
right attitude in their children in appreciation to God who has entrusted them in their care.
Lady Fubara gave the advice when she visited University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital and Rivers State
University Teaching Hospital all in Port Harcourt to felicitate with babies born on Christmas day in these
Hospitals on Monday.

The governor’s wife who shared gifts to the babies born on Christmas day and other children in the wards

“My message to all mothers is to appreciate that, God has laid a lot of things in the hands of women and God expects us to manage our homes in love and unity” she said, noting that training our children with the fear of the Lord is an obligation.

“Just as it is saddled on the husbands to provide for the family, it is also the woman’s duty to support her
husband to build the family in love and in unity.”
Speaking further, Lady Fubara said that Christmas is a very important event in christendom and urged Christiansto emulate the life of Christ in all ramifications.
