Wife of the President Hajia Aisha Buhari has demanded stringent punishment against perpetrators of gender-based violence against women.
She particularly advocated the establishment of a special court to fast-track the prosecution of offenders.
The First Lady spoke at the second annual conference of the Nigeria Governors’ Wives Forum with the theme: “Sustaining action on the state of emergency against sexual and gender-based violence.”

The First Lady also stressed the need for State Governments to remove all hindrances against girl child education.
The Chairman of Nigeria Governors’ Forum and Ekiti Governor Kayode Fayemi restated the Forum’s commitment to the advancement of the course of women in the country.
