FIDA NIGERIA IKEJA BRANCH LAW WEEK got off to a thrilling start yesterday with the theme, “Rights of Women in Nigeria – Full Participation of Women as Equal partners in Africa’s Development”.

Our distinguished resource persons discussed vital, relevant and topical issues among other things, and created awareness of FIDA’s activities and objectives.

Adeniyi Quadri Esq discussed the vital issue of “Full Participation of women in Politics as equal partners in Africa’s Development.”

Lady Phil Nneji discussed “The Maputo Protocol: a way forward to eliminate all forms of discrimination against women in Africa.” This is a relevant topic and acts as a step down on the FIDA NIGERIA and our Collaborators’ objectives of domesticating the Protocol.

Mr. Alexander Mouka took the audience through the topical issue, “Rights of Women as Inalienable, Interdependent and Indivisible Human Rights.”

Indeed it was a learning experience especially for our FIDA Associates, Caleb University Magodo College of Law students. This Student Chapter was inaugurated in October 2023. The students heard about the different enactments that will strengthen the FIDA NIGERIA objective.

The AGM will hold on 7/12/23. On the 8th of December, 2023 the branch will mark the 16 Days of Activism against gender based violence.

It was indeed an enlightening event as the Rights of women under Nigerian Law were extensively analysed by the erudite speakers!
