Joe-Kyari Gadzama,SAN, a well-known supporter and advocate for women’s rights, Senior Advocate of Nigeria and Candidate for the Office of the President of the Nigerian Bar Association, in his continuing support of women and women Lawyers was in attendance at the opening ceremony of FIDA (International Federation of Women Lawyers) Lagos Branch, held at the Institute of International Affairs, VI, Lagos, today 14/6/22
The Learned silk in his goodwill message to the group of women Lawyers, beamed with pride at the progress of branch in tackling issues against women and children in Lagos state and congratulated the members of FIDA Lagos branch on the choice of theme for the Law Week: “EDUCATION as a catalyst for boosting the self-image of the African Child”.
In his opinion, the very need to secure the rights of an African Child cannot be overemphasized as Africa has been challenged with the lack of good leadership, poverty, and degradation of persons majorly women and children who are pushed into trafficking. Sensitization of the African Child is a strong tool which can enlighten the African Child most especially the Girl Child to their endless world of possibilities in developing and securing their self-image as well as an enviable future profitable to the African continent and the world.
Chief J-K Gadzama,SAN went further to commend the Chairman, executives and members of the branch for taking him as one of theirs and for their numerous sacrifices and constructive efforts in moving the branch forward and assured the branch of his continuing support always.
