Osun residents tasked on human rights
From Fisayo Akinduro, Osogbo
As the world celebrates International Human Rights Day, residents of Osun State have been enjoined to treat everyone with the highest attainable dignity.
Commissioner for Women and Children Affairs, Mrs Olubukola Olaboopo who gave the advice in Osogbo said women and children’s rights must also be protected, valued and respected.
She said the Gboyega Oyetola’s administration is committed to give priority to the needs and interests of Women and Children in the State.
Olaboopo stressed that women and children have always been at the receiving end of the violations of these rights.
“We vow that under no circumstances will the State violate the rights of children or women or possibly allow those rights to be violated by anyone within the State of Osun.
“In the last one year of the administration of the Governor, our government has displayed a very high sense of responsibility in the way and manner issues of women and children in our dear State are handled.
“This is a reflection of our civilization as a people and the commitment of the Governor as a person.”
While condemning human rights violations, she said the Day reminds us that as humans, we all have equal rights which are fundamental to our existence as a people, regardless of our Sex, Race, Ethnicity, Nationality, Language and Religion.
