Adesina Adegbite Congratulates FIDA Kwara State on Its Law Week

Past National Welfare Secretary of the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, Adesina Adegbite has conveyed a congratulatory message to the Federación Internacional dé Abogadas, FIDA, (International Federation of Women Lawyers) on Its ongoing law week.

Mr. Adegbite said “I heartily congratulate the Chairperson, the Executive Officers, the Law Week Planning Committee and all members of FIDA Kwara Branch on the occasion of the Annual FIDA Kwara Week taking place in Ilorin, Kwara State, from 10th to 16tn October, 2021.

The Theme of the Week – SPEAK OUT with the hashtags: RAPE AND DOMESTIC VIOLENCE“, is most desirable at this critical time. I am aware that the Week is aimed at creating awareness, sensitizing women, children and vulnerable persons, on the urgent need to speak out against personal sexual violations and abuse generally.

I am particularly delighted that FIDA has remained consistent in championing the cause of the vulnerable persons. Rape and Domestic or Gender based Violence is dangerously becoming an endemic that must be urgently wiped out with a deliberate and sustainable action. Our laws must be strengthened and effectively enforced to ensure abusers face the wrath of the law while the victims gets justice for being violated.

It is with a great pleasure that I wish FIDA Kwara Branch, a most successful 2021 Law Week.”
