President Muhammadu Buhari has come out to say that his administration has put in place several measures to tackle sexual and gender-based violence in the country.

He recently had his say via his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu.

According to him, his government has always been focused on eradicating poverty and enhancing growth and development for Nigerian women and girls.

He added that the International Day of Eliminating Violence against Women presents a special opportunity to highlight actions taken by his government to address issues affecting the feminine gender.

His words, “To mitigate the socio-economic effects of the coronavirus pandemic, the government has prioritized vulnerable groups, including women, in the provision of medical and social assistance.

“Our administration remains committed to eradicating poverty and enhancing growth and development for women and girls.

“In the last year, over one million Nigerians have been enrolled into National Social Register of Poor and Vulnerable Households to enable them to access needed social assistance.

“Under the National Social Investment Programme, we have commenced cash transfers and distribution of food items to individuals and families across all States in Nigeria as palliatives.

“The palliatives will cushion the effect of the Coronavirus pandemic.”
