While conducting prayers for the forthcoming National Conference, general elections, and against corruption and ungodly leaders, Deaconess Uduaghan affirmed that the foothold of Nigeria’s greatness started in Delta state with the commencement of the Delta Mothers’ Day Of Prayer in 2007, adding that Deltan and Nigerian women would not cease in their prayers to uplift Delta state, Nigeria and its people.

According to her, “To be a godly mother is not a permanent thing. Godliness simply means God being in the centre of your life, your thought, your work, your speech.”
