Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has said that the Buhari administration is working Together with State governments across the country, and all other stakeholders, to deal decisively with the problem of rape and gender-based violence in Nigeria.

According to the Vice President, every form of sexual assault “are blemishes on the collective humanity and dignity of Nigerians as a people and a Nation.”

He was quoted to have said this on Friday, in a statement signed by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande after he held a virtual meeting with the National Human Rights Commission over the recent cases of sexual and gender-based violence in Nigeria and the way forward.

He also promised to encourage state governments who are yet to domesticate the Violence Against Persons Prohibition Act of 2015 and the Child Rights Act of 2003 to do so.
