Conflicts may sometimes give birth to new or good things. This may be so because the office of the First Lady in Rivers State seems to have bounced back.

Now, wife of Rivers State Governor, Lady Valerie Fubara, has visited hospitals on Christmas Day to share love and encourage mothers of new born babies.

The First Lady is also said to have scheduled a party for children in the state on Boxing Day, something that has disappeared for almost nine years.

At the hospital, she 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 visited, thanked God for the safe delivery of the children and congratulated their parents and the hospitals.

“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 Christians to emulate the life of Christ in all ramifications.

Christmas is the time that we celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. So, as Christians, it is very important for us to also show what it means to be a Christian, you have to behave Christlike.”

Parents of the babies born at the Rivers State University Teaching, Mr and Mrs  Akaningene Okechukwu Edah and the mother of the one born at University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital, Mrs Lilian Ifezue, expressed gratitude to the wife of  Governor Fubara for coming to share in their joy and blessing their babies with gifts.
