Women Seek Increased Budget for Gender Issues

Women activists have called on the government to implement more budgetary allocation for gender-related programmes.

This, they said, would help in addressing the gender challenges facing women, children and people with disabilities in the country.

The women leaders made this call today in Ibadan, Oyo State, while addressing journalists.

Nkoyo Toyo, one of the women leaders, recommended an increased funding of the Ministry of Women Affairs to sustain the ministry’s programmes on gender issues.

Toyo, who admitted that the present administration had achieved its 35 per cent Affirmative Action noted that there are still more things that need to be done to improve the lives of women and other vulnerable groups.
