He congratulated FIDA for creating a new chapter in Warri with a staff of the ministry as the Chairperson.
He said he was confident that the Chairperson of the Warri Branch would do the Ministry of Justice proud by taking FIDA to the next level, just as he wished them well in their endeavours.
He praised two FIDA members, Mrs Akamagwuna and Mrs Nwanze, staff of the Ministry of Justice, saying that they were resourceful persons in the Sexual Offences and Gender Base Unit and Anti-Human Trafficking Unit respectively of the ministry.
Bozimo said that through the efforts of Mrs Akamagwuna, the ministry had been able to launch the Sexual Offenders Register in the state.
The Chairperson of FIDA in state, Mrs Stellamaris Emejuru, who spoke earlier, commended the Attorney-General, saying that he had done well within the short time of being in office and that FIDA was proud of him.
She appreciated the Attorney -General for his support for FIDA and NBA activities in the state, adding that “in less than two years we came on board, our records spoke for us, and we were allowed to birth another branch. I am glad to tell you that we have been able to birth another branch in Warri.”
The FIDA Chairperson said that it was necessary that since the body had started collaborating with the Ministry of Justice in the state, it was necessary to visit the Attorney- General to inform him of their achievements and also appeal joint efforts in fighting the menace of gender violence and other related issues in the state.
She commended staff of the ministry who were members of FIDA for their tremendous assistance to the group.
FIDA Chairperson disclosed that the group had embarked on sensitisation visits to schools across the state, adding that incidents of infant children abuse, even by their biological parents, was on the rise.
