The walk was held on Thursday, Dec 10, as part of the activities to mark the closing of this year’s 16 Days of Activism against gender-based violence.

The First Lady led participants through major streets of Makurdi, the state capital and terminated the walk at Benue Hotels where a dissemination meeting was held.

Speaking at the dissemination meeting, Mrs Ortom warned that the people must not take the end of the #16daysofactivism period as the end of the fight against GBV.

She said,

“This is rather the time to build on the observations and experiences of the period in order to be more determined and committed to ending GBV in Benue State.”

The first lady’s walk comes days after her and her husband, Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State reconciled a domestic abusive husband, Pius Angbo with his wife, Dr. Ifeyinwa Angbo.
