Foundation tasks African govts on gender-based violence

The Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Training Centre (KAIPTC) Monday called on African leaders and stakeholders to tackle Gender Based Violence (GBV).

The Deputy Commandant, KAIPTC, Air Commodore George Arko-Dadzie, made the call at the opening of a five-day training on ‘Preventing and Responding to GBV in Africa.’

He said despite the United Nations’ resolution and the protocol put in place and all the legal backing against GBV, Africa was still plague with this menace.

He said: “There’s the need to educate people and look at the issue in the context of Africa.

“This training is the first of its kind and it is taking place in Nigeria with the objectives of equipping the stakeholders with the skills and knowledge that’ll help to meet up with the fight against the menace of GBV.”
