Ahmadu Bello University will host a sensitization campaign on Violence Against Persons Prohibition (VAPP) Law aimed at creating awareness and popularizing the law among relevant stakeholders in tertiary institutions and communities in Kaduna State.
In December, 2018, Kaduna State Governor, His Excellency, Malam Nasir El-Rufa’i, signed into law the Violence Against Persons Prohibition (VAPP) Law to address all forms of violence and discrimination against persons, and provide maximum protection and effective remedies for victims as well as stipulating punishment for offenders.
Disturbed by the low level of awareness among tertiary institutions, Ahmadu Bello University was picked as a suitable community for the sensitization programme.
The awareness campaign, supported by Ford Foundation and Hadis Organisation, is billed to hold at CBN Centre for Economics and Finance, Ahmadu Bello University, Samaru, Zaria on Wednesday, 27th October, 2021.
The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Kabiru Bala, is expected to be the chief host and to also deliver the keynote address.
Expectedly, dignitaries from security agencies, Ministries of Education, Health, Justice and students would attend the one-day event.
