Nasarawa: Governor’s Wife leads walk against Gender-Based Violence

The Wife of Nasarawa State Governor, Hajiya Salifat Abdullahi Sule, has led female folks in the state on a walk to end Gender-Based Violence (GBV) in the state and across Nigeria.

The Nasarawa women’s walk against GBV, which began at the Government House Lafia and terminated at the Nasarawa State House of Assembly complex, was organized by the Nasarawa first lady’s pet project, Salifat Abdullahi Sule (SAS) Hope Foundation, in conjunction with some Non-governmental Organisations.

Addressing members of the state House of Assembly, the state first lady said as women, they were not in support of Gender-Based Violence, hence they were at the state House of Assembly to let the lawmakers know, and if possible, pass that bill of the abuse of girl child into law.

The Nasarawa State first lady, who spoke through the wife of the state deputy governor, Mrs SheilaTosan Akabe, continued that women of the state were not happy with what was going on where there were many forms of abuse of the girl child.

“That is why we are ending our 16 days activism with a walk right from the Government House to the state House of Assembly to register our grudges and to register our presence here with the speaker of the state House of Assembly,” Salifat maintained.

Addressing the women at the assembly complex, Speaker of the House, Balarabe Abdullahi, expressed gratitude at the first lady’s consistency in ensuring an end to the abuse of girl child’s rights in Nasarawa State and Nigeria as a whole.

The Deputy Majority Leader of the House of Assembly, Ogah Ogazi, who received the first lady on behalf of the speaker said, “The House of Assembly is following your (first lady’s) programs.

You have gone to Police stations and courts to ensure that you secure a judgment for that abused girl child in the state.

“The House of Assembly is with you, and it is in this vein that Mr Speaker has sponsored a bill in that direction and it has been passed by the assembly and as well assented to by your husband, the governor of the state.
