The wife of Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State, Mrs. Ebelechukwu Obiano, has called for mandatory genotype tests for all intending couples.

Mrs. Obiano, the Founder of the Caring Family Enhancement Initiative (CAFE), made the call while receiving an award from the London Borough of Brent, at Aguleri near Awka on Thursday.

The award is in recognition of her contributions in creating awareness and support for people living with sickle cell disorder and disabilities.

In her remarks, the governor’s wife recalled the pain of losing one of her daughters to sickle cell disease some years ago. She said the experience gave her the courage to work for the welfare and wellbeing of persons living with sickle cell.
