President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday morning, expressed disgust against the recent rising of rape cases in the country.
During his speech to commemorate Nigeria’s 21st democracy day, he assured Nigerians that appropriate sanctions will be carried out on those who perpetuate this act.
According to him, “Nigerian women remain a particular treasure to this nation and for this reason this administration has continued to give them a place of pride in the affairs of our country.
“I salute your courage, enterprise and resilience as well as your contributions to national development. I wish to assure all our women of this administration’s determination to fight Gender-Based Violence through the instrumentality of the law and awareness creation.
“I am particularly upset at recent incidents of rape, especially of very young girls. The Police are pursuing these cases with a view to bringing perpetrators of these heinous crimes to swift justice.”Follow us on Instagram @sofovilla | Follow us on Twitter @sofovilla | Like our page on Facebook via @sofovillamedia
