The official made the call in a chat with our reporter in Azare Katagum local government, during this year’s 16 days of activism by the organisation to raise awareness on Gender Based Violence on women and children particularly the girl-child.
Mrs. Evelyn Paul noted that the programme invited several stakeholders including officials from partner organisations, social welfare officers, judiciary staff and religious leaders in order to meet and discuss on this critical issue that requires urgent attention.
She said all hands must be on deck to raise awareness on understanding the problem and encourage the victims to speak up so that the perpetrators are prosecuted to face the wrath of the law.
