Saturday 3 December 2022


Between the 25th of November and 10th of December every year there is activism against GBV world wide. All events I attend during this period, I ensure that the colour theme, orange, is my logo as regards my dressing. The year, the theme is 'Unite: Activism to end violence against women & girls'. So far, I have attended two major events during this period. *The 'Seed Connect' Conference on the 28th of November 2022, where I sought collaboration within the seed (in agriculture) value chain and the Forum on Farmer-Herder Relations in Nigeria (FFARN). I am a valued member of the 'Coordinating Committee' of FFARN. *On the 30th of November, I attended the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung (FES) parley with theme: 'Women & youth inclusion in peace & security architecture in Nigeria: Understanding the resistance & bureaucracy'. I was the lead presenter for the topic: 'The UN peace & security agenda in Nigeria via the lens of women, peace & security (WPS)'.

I keep moving during these 16 days of activism and always to ensure zero tolerance for GBV in Nigeria...
