Prior to now the narrative had been echoed on equality but now more than ever before embracing equity is critical to ensure a balanced society across board. We generally need to understand the difference between Equality and Equity.

Dear Citizens of Nigeria,

28th February, 2023:

The African Women's Leadership Fund (AWLF) and the Ladies Empowerment Goals and Support Initiative (LEGASI) are deeply concerned about the recent incidences of violence in Nigeria, particularly in the lead up to the announcement of the presidential results. We strongly condemn all acts of violence and call on all citizens to remain calm and peaceful during this critical time.
We understand that tensions are high, and emotions are running deep, but we urge all Nigerians to exercise restraint and engage in peaceful dialogue and lawful expression of their views Violence only begets more violence, and it is not a solution to any problem. It only serves to exacerbate the situation and cause harm and destruction to the nation and its people - Download Press Release here.

Hadiza’s story is one that cuts across for many women who have been victims of one form of brutal crisis. She lost her husband and uncle in February, 2018 in one of the attacks in Kasuwan Magani Community in Kaduna state as the tension in her village reached its peak. As the violence broke out her husband and uncle were catch up in the cross fire and killed, this was traumatic for her and ever since that day she has been redrawn within her community and from other neighbours as she stayed away from them quietly blaming them for the loss she incurred.
