Buba, noted the government was determined to adequately protect women and the girl child, adding that anyone guilty of inflicting violence against women, will face the full wrath of the law.

 

The Commissioner, who embarked on the road show alongside Secretary to the State Government, Dr. Mrs. Folashade Arike Ayoade, Civil Societies, Non- Governmental Organizations,  such as Action Aid, PIBCID, FIDA, NAWOJ, Nigeria Girls Guide, Concerned Women Organization, thanked Governor Bello, “for giving women sense of belonging in the state”.

According to her, through government relentless efforts, a considerable reduction in violence against women, girls & persons, have been achieved in the state, since the present administration came into power in 2016.
