Traditional leaders in Bogoro local government area of Bauchi state have expressed readiness to support the campaign for women involvement in Peace, Security and Decision making towards the rapid development of the society.

The Village Head of Bogoro Mr Nuhu Tafida gave the commitment while receiving the Women Wing of Christian Association of Nigeria WOWICAN Community development unit on an advocacy and townhall meeting at his palace.

The advocacy visit is part of activities under the Action Aid Women Voice Leadership Project in partnership with Fahimta Women and Youth Initiative and WOWICAN.

Mr Nuhu Tafida said the project is timely considering the challenges being experienced in the society, hence the need for its expansion to all nooks and crannies to ensure wider coverage and sensitisation.

Ha called for the introduction of rehabilitation program into the project targeted at girls and youth towards reducing social vices in the area.

Earlier, the Team Leader and Deputy Chairperson WOWICAN Bauchi State chapter Madam Gladys Mbami urged traditional and religious leaders to ensure women participation in leadership and decision making for equity and fair representation.

Also Speaking, the Programme Officer Olushoga Ogunnipe said the project seeks to ensure active Women’s participation in Politics, business and Leadership especially in rural areas.

Olushoga Ogunnipe who decried low participation of women in leadership in the area, stressed the need for the traditional leaders to include women in their council to support them towards achieving sustainable peace and development.

In an interview with Radio Nigeria, the representatives of the Hamlet Heads of Bom and Arewan Gwaranga Emmanuel Mantau and Mr Daniel Bako respectively commended development partners and NGOs for such initiatives and promised to redouble effort towards women empowerment and involvement in decision making.

The three year project is currently being implemented at Gwaranga and Mwari communities in Bogoro local government area of the state.
