The Not-so Golden Silence of the Nigeria Diaspora

There is now an increasing and widespread recognition that President Muhammadu Buhari has failed to take control of the security situation in Nigeria. I am alarmed by the strikingly high number of unarmed and defenseless women being raped, kidnapped and killed in Nigeria, and especially that this horrific trend continues to worsen. Conflict affects development, however it chiefly impacts the lives of women and children. According to Tomori Uriel, student of Mass Communication at the University of Ilorin “the experiences of women and young girls have been so infelicitous till now”. This further legitimizes my deep concern regarding the continuous disadvantageous treatment towards women and young girls in Northern Nigeria.

My Mission is to Amplify Voices of Vulnerable People

In the capacity of a duty bearer and ambassador, i amplify the voices of vulnerable people and i actively advocate for an inclusive, peaceful, democratic and resilient society void of denial of education for the girl-child, unfortunate continuous disadvantageous treatment towards northern Nigerian women, sexual exploitation, discrimination, child marriage and other injustices.

Changing the African Narrative

My search led me to Magna Faith who says what she meant, and meant what she says. My search lead me to a woman with convictions who does not change her principles based on her audience at any given point. So, when I became aware of the amazing work she has been doing to transforming the polity back home, I had no choice to say yes to aligning with her platform.
