My Story

Cultural background of the people

20160215_145317

“Gender distribution of role in the Nigerian society, especially in the north, is very bad. Looking at the cultural background of the people help a lot in understanding how to deal with issues they encounter. For instance land ownership is basically a male territory, a woman can only buy or own a land if a man stands for her. This happened to me.

I am a professional program manager and rights advocate working for a non-governmental organization. We work with over one hundred and ninety eight communities across twelve northern states. My role is basically to support these communities so they are mobilized in a bid to identify key developmental issues affecting their rights.” #AbujaNigeria
