Dr Nonye Soludo, the wife of the Anambra State Governor, emphasized the importance of adopting healthy living practices, including good nutrition, maintaining a clean environment, acquiring essential life skills, and upholding strong morals, as a means to enhance longevity and combat diseases.
During a media chat to promote her initiative called ‘Healthy Living with Nonye Soludo Campaign’ in Awka, she encouraged people to reduce their consumption of processed and chemicalized foods, while promoting the adoption of backyard farming for the cultivation and consumption of natural foods.
She said: “I started championing ‘Healthy living with Nonye Soludo’ 10 years ago. I give talks on healthy lifestyles and good diets with our local foods.
“I want to bring the message home to our people because we need to be healthy to achieve a liveable and prosperous homeland.
“I have started forming healthy living clubs in our schools to inculcate the culture of healthy lifestyles and catch them young so that they can grow into responsible adults.
“Our children need to get addicted to eating healthy, doing physical exercises and environmental hygiene to stay healthy, rather than get addicted to their phones and social media.”
