State of the nation: Women groups sue for peace
Worried by the current state of the nation, a coalition of women groups under the aegis of the Nigerian Women for Peaceful Coexistence and Unity, has called for the end of hostilities and violence in all parts of the country, urging aggrieved parties to pursue their cases through dialogue.
Addressing a media briefing in Lagos, the leader of the group and former presidential liaison to the National Assembly, Florence Ita-Giwa, who frowned at the prevailing disruption of public peace and order in some parts of the country, appealed for calm, urging Nigerians to embrace peace and work for unity.
Supported by a host of other women, including the former Deputy of Lagos State, Sinatu Ojukutu and Kafilat Ogbara, the former senator urged Nigerians to shun the seed of discord being sowed by some individuals, who are bent on plunging the country into crisis.
Also speaking, the former Deputy Governor of Lagos State, Chief Sinatu Aderoju Ojikutu pleaded with mothers to caution their wards against being used as tools of violence. She observed that youths of today are easily swayed due to the high rate of unemployment, urging those, who are agitating for their right to do so through a peaceful means.
