Still at the unveiling, she further disclosed that: “Today , history beckons as i add my voice to the movement that will hopefully inspire the abolishment of widows' maltreatment in our communities. It's heart breaking to realize that with all the societal advancements, a reasonable segment of our society which constitutes over 8 million disadvantaged widows and 24 million children below age 17 are still subject to maltreatment that include; domestic violence, sexual assault, conversion of properties, forced evictions, neglects, denial of human rights and the list goes on. I stand with widows today, will you join me? Let's protect the rights of widows and women. I believe no woman deserves to be maltreated regardless of the circumstances life throws at her.
I million pledges is needed to present the 'abolish widows maltreatment in Edo state bill' to the Edo state House of Assembly which i believe will eventually inspire communities across Africa to seek for this all important change. I just pledged my voice as a 'Widows'Liberty Ambassador' for the Felix King Foundation Liberty Project for the abolishment of widows' maltreatment in Africa, WILL YOU? Please join me to raise the 1 million pledges. it takes less than a minute to sign on but you'll be changing the life of a widow and more widows to come tomorrow when this bill is passed by the grace of God. I stand with #abolishwidowsmaltreatment. Let's do this together!”
