The actress urged political parties and their candidates in the state to commit to the implementation of the Ekiti Gender-based Violence Prohibition Law (2019) and the already developed implementation plan.

She also encouraged party candidates to take a stand against youth incited/perpetrated electoral violence, hate speech, vote-buying and other forms of violence targeted at women. She added, “Party candidates should promote public intolerance of violence targeted at politically active women and ensure their free participation in party functions and structures, and support women voters’ mobilisation.”
