Anambra State Governor, Professor Chukwuma Soludo, has felicitated Dame Virgy Etiaba on the occasion of her 81st birthday celebration.

Governor Soludo in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Christian Aburime, further noted that “birthdays are special moments to treasure the gift of life.”

“As you celebrate this special day with family and friends, may your life remain filled with continued love, good health and happiness,” Soludo said.
