Aisha Buhari, wife of President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday condemned the incessant rape and killing of women in the country.
Aisha expressed her anger while condemning the rape and murder of a 100-level student of the University of Benin, UNIBEN, Vera Uwaila Omozuwa.
Omozuwa, a 22-year-old girl was raped and murdered inside a Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, church in Benin City, Edo State.
Reacting on her Twitter page, Aisha promised to ensure that relevant structures and policy frameworks are put in place to end Gender-Based Violence in Nigeria.
She said, “It is devastating to hear about the gruesome death of our daughters who were mercilessly raped by men, who in some cases are their fathers, brothers and protectors of their chastity.
“Women are increasingly becoming vulnerable in a society that is expected to guarantee their safety and we owe it a duty to do everything possible to protect them.
“Last year, I started working with governors wives of the 36 states to end Gender-based violence (GBV) in Nigeria, I launched a campaign with the governors’ wives and other stakeholders and issued a statement nation-wide in response to increasing and frequent reports of GBV with the slogan – LEAVE OUR DAUGHTERS ALONE!
“This was followed by planned advocacy for the constitution of a presidential task force on ending GBV in Nigeria; prospective members were identified.
“The objective was to review the policy and legal frameworks on GBV to propose strengthening measures and an improvement plan.
“In view of the recent developments, I, therefore, call on all stakeholders especially the Federal Ministry of Women Affairs as well as legal and security agencies to expedite action so that justice takes its course accordingly.
“ I will continue to work with the governors’ wives to ensure that relevant structures and policy frameworks are put in place to end Gender-Based Violence in Nigeria.
