Nigerians Call for Support For The Gender Equal Opportunity Bill #SupportGEOBill

Today, I am working on speaking up about the Gender Equal Opportunity Bill with the hashtag #SupportGEOBill


Having understood why it is very necessary, I lend my voice.

First this bill was sponsored by Senator Biodun Olujimi and have been making progress till I heard a shocker.

Some law makers said, if the #GEOBill is passed it will give women "too much freedom".

Can you imagine?

So I took my time to dissect the bill and have become a brand influencer alongside others to share.

First what is this bill about?
The Gender and Equal Opportunities (GEO) Bill seeks to achieve equal opportunities for men and women and boys and girls in all spheres of life specifically in the fields of health, education, governance, employment as well as in social and economic field. Its focus is on the elimination of discrimination in these areas and on the grounds of gender , age or disability.

Is it not a good thing when we do not discriminate anyone just because they are young, old, disabled in any way, or because they are male or female? Shouldn't the law protect everyone and give us equal access as citizens?

So fam, we (Women and Men) must seeks ways to lend our thoughts and voice to this bill being passed.

Imagine how endangered your daughters in particular will be if we do not upgrade our country laws to protect them and everyone?

We need a developed, civilised country and continent; this bill ensure a bit of that while we work at reconfiguring other policies and value systems too.

In fact, I usually wonder why are things like basic rights of humans is still what we are dragging in 2017....Nawaoh!

We gat work to do to preserve our posterity!

Share your thoughts.


I WILL BE DOING MORE ON TWITTER...



Happy Monday

Jenny Chisom's 12 Codes of Conduct for Men That Rivals Any Male Code

It's been a tough past week so I am grateful for Sunday heralding a new week.
I have been burdened to create a Code of Conduct for members of the League of Extraordinary Men (LExM) on Facebook. So while I couldn't attend service, I sat down and wrote this down on my note pad, then typed it.
This came in a bid to begin to restructure the group to ensure it is serving the right purpose and the right men.

Why Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme Resigned From House on the Rock Church in Abuja

I have been in pains!

If you follow me on Instagram, you will notice, I put up my pastor and coach's picture last weekend because I was heart broken.
He is Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme, the outgone (as much as I hate to use that) resident pastor of my local assembly in Abuja. I and all those who knows him, are going to miss him soooooooo much, it hurts.
