Week of Action against Domestic Violence in Lagos State: Day 2 – Advocacy Visit to the Iyaloja General of Lagos State, Chief Mrs Folashade Tinubu-Ojo.
“We would not have successfully sensitized Lagosians about Domestic Violence if we have not engaged market Women.” Vweta Chadwick, Global Programme Director, ASHA Initiative.
The Chairperson of the Lagos State Gender Advocacy Team (LASGAT) Dr Keziah Awoshika and the State Coordinator Barr Titilope Akosa led Gender Activists to the Office of the Iyaloja General (the leader of all market women in Lagos) today, to seek her support in sensitizing market women across the state on domestic and gender based violence.
Chief Tinubu-Ojo received the LASGAT team and pledged her commitment to provide any assistance and support required to get this very important message across.
The visit culminated in the presentation of the Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Directory, Campaign stickers and other IEC materials to the Iyaloja.
