The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), has called for the proper implementation of the Violence Against Persons Prohibition Act, 2015.
Wabba said that the proper implementation was necessary to prohibit all forms of violence against persons in both private and public life.
Waba expressed concern that violence against women and girls was the most widespread violation of human rights in the world.
“This occurs everywhere; at home, in schools, on the streets and at work, but often treated with impunity.
“We, therefore, support the ILO Convention on Gender Based Violence for the realisation and protection of women’s rights and increased productivity and dignity at work,‘’ he said.
He called on all to support the cause of the Convention.
