END WIDOW ABUSE
I welcome us to this special coalition made up of individuals and leaders who are interested in going beyond supporting widows. This group is made up of people from all walks of life and groups that are ready to go beyond providing daily subsistence to widows. Members are interested in the mission to actually PUSH towards getting an Affirmative Action or Executive Order from the Federal and State Government towards #EndWidowAbuse.
I urge us all to have an open mind. Let’s come up with questions and comments to guide us towards unravelling the mysteries, debunking the myths and uprooting the conspiracy surrounding abuse of widows in Nigeria and beyond.
As we grow the group, those in the frontline would be added as moderators. But I ask that we all do the job of growing the group quickly so that awareness can be created beyond the #7WidowWeek mission as we push to #EndWidowAbuse.
Please note that this is not a group to justify that widows deserve to have everything to the detriment of other stakeholders. This is a group to champion the cause that in 2020 no woman should lose her man and still lose her mind or worse still her life. In 2020 no woman should lose her home or comfort in addition to losing the love of her life.
At the wake of this new decade, government should have clear laws, rules and policies to protect widows and punish (as deterrent) those who dare to defraud widows. Government should openly say NO to the paganism branded as culture that leads to loss of life due to the immeasurable wickedness done by many widows.
This is a hands on group where everyone is a big part of the team. Let us all contribute. We encourage you to share your views so we can quickly frame our agenda as a group.

I thank you all for being a part of this noble vision.
