Before Joan of Arc united medieval France against a common enemy, the English, France was torn between warring Princes and Nobles who made the once European super power to crumble in the face of internal and civil crisis.
The Speaker, Anambra State House of Assembly, Rt Hon Rita Maduagwu, had displayed such uncommon valour when she united Lawmakers on the fight against Sickle Cell, our common enemy, which has plagued Humanity for Centuries.
In a recently plenary at the State House of Assembly, the Speaker displayed consistency in her appeal to the Lawmakers on the importance of passing the Sickle Cell Bill into law.
Association of People Living with Sickle Cell Disorder, APLSCD and all Sickle Cell patients in Nigeria and across Africa are very elated and quite appreciative of the Speaker and all Lawmakers in the Anambra State House of Assembly for their positive outlook towards the Sickle Cell Law.
We believe and hold sincere that the Speaker is using the instruments of Government for the common good of the masses and must be encouraged by all especially women in politics. Her actions is a true reflection of what democratic principles and motherhood should be.
The Sickle Cell bill is sponsored by Hon. Charles Ezeani, Member Representing Anaocha 2 Constituency.
We wish the Speaker and Anambra Lawmakers well.
