According to a statement by the Chairperson of the Branch, Marian Jones and Publicity Secretary, Clara Mbachu, the theme of the Law Week is “Rights of Women in Nigeria – Full Participation of Women as Equal partners in Africa’s Development”.

Below is the full text of the statement.

FIDA NIGERIA IKEJA BRANCH is the 44th branch of FIDA NIGERIA inaugurated on the 14th of September 2022.

Every Branch is mandated under the FIDA NIGERIA constitution to hold its Law Week annually and in that period hold its AGM.

FIDA NIGERIA IKEJA BRANCH will hold its maiden Law Week celebrations from 6th – 8th of December 2023 with the theme, “Rights of Women in Nigeria – Full Participation of Women as Equal partners in Africa’s Development”.


  • “Full Participation of women in Politics as equal partners in Africa’s Development.”
  • The Maputo Protocol a way forward to eliminate all forms of discrimination against women in Africa

This acts as a step down of training held in the past.

  • Rights of Women as an Inalienable, Interdependent and Indivisible Human Rights.

This last discourse is apt as the world marks the 16 Days of Activism against gender based violence which started on the 25th November 2023 and will end on 10th December, 2023 on the International Human Rights Day.

It is going to be an enlightening event as the rights of women under Nigerian Law will be extensively analysed.
