The Nigerian Governors Wives Forum in collaboration held a webinar session with prominent entertainment personalities who are considered as role models and public figures with a lot of influence in their community on June 29, 2021 to commemorate the International Day of Drug Abuse 2021.

In 2020, the Nigerian Governors Wives Forum established a flagship initiative called Nigerian Governors’ Wives Against Gender Based Abuse (NGWA-GBV) to address the country’s rising incidences of sexual and gender violence. The first ladies were deeply concerned by the seemingly continuous brutality against women, particularly rape, domestic violence and socio-economic violence cases. The NGWA-GBV team began working diligently and eventually influenced the Nigerian Governors Forum (NGF) to declare a state of emergency against Sexual and Gender Based Violence on June 1st, 2020.

We secured numerous earned media features for the client, including major televisions and print.
