Gender-Based Violence refers to harmful acts directed at an individual based on their gender which include sexual, physical, mental and economic harms inflicted in public or in private. It also includes threats of violence, coercion and manipulation. This can take many forms such as intimate partner violence, sexual violence, child marriage, female genital mutilation and so-called ‘honour crimes’. The consequences of gender-based violence are devastating and can have life-long repercussions on survivors.

Violence is a form of action that causes pain, destruction or suffering to the affected persons. All over the world, gender-based violence acts as threats to human rights and hinders the ability of the victims to contribute meaningfully to societal growth, sustainable peace and development. This is because victims of violence often find it difficult to express themselves freely or explore the talents embedded in them to make their environment more soothing, loving, peaceful and comfortable.

There is no gain saying the fact that, these phenomenon has deeply rooted in gender inequality and continues to be one of the most notable human right violations. Non Governmental Organizations like the BAOBAB foundation has it that gender-based violence can take different forms and mostly affects women and girls, which can result in physical, sexual, psychological or economic harm, depending on the society or individual being affected.

Consequently, gender-based violence takes different forms to operate within its environment thus they include: physical, sexual or psychological. Factors such as poverty, lack of education and unemployment are set to cause gender-based violence in the life of a person or a community. No matter the form of gender-based violence, it leaves several short and long-term implications for victims which prevents them from contributing actively to the promotion of sustainable peace and development.

Stakeholders particularly Non Governmental Organizations such as the Bauchi State Sexual Assault Referral Center, according to the founder of the Organization Hajiya Hadiza Muhammad from February to November 2023, it has received 200 case of Gender Based Violence mostly from the rural areas.

Another foundation, Ikra Youth and Women Group said it has received 500 cases of GBV and 100 out of the number are rape from Toro, Alkaleri and Katagum across Bauchi State in 2023, this is according to the director of the group Amina Garuba Ahmad as published by a national daily on 15 October 2023.

In 2021, 40 year old man has been arrested for allegedly rapping four year old girl in side Mosque in Igbo quarters Aminu street Bauchi. Malam Jamilu Abdullahi, Father of the victim,
“I lived in Igbo quarters, Bauchi,now living in Unguwar Sarakuna. My daughter who was the victim of the rape is Hauwa’u Jamilu , when the ugly trend happened, she was six years and now 9 years, “I was not at home went for livelihood and the mother of the victim, they called me and informed on the matter ,the people of my area took action. I am called on people to desist from discrimination to the people who were affected by such accident. I felt discourage and deep concern on the matter,with this I want to called on parents to be extra careful and monitor the affairs of their children to disassociate them from bad eggs. One of the reason why I changed my place of living is to protect my daughter from the discrimination, people in my old area describing the victim somehow.

GVB and experience:
According to Jamilu Abdullahib Bauchi State government,under the office of the first , deserved a wonderful commendation, because , she took the baby to the hospital for necessary medication, people like member representing Bauchi at the State house of assembly and Speaker of the house and other leaders ,I knowledge their contribution in the crusade.

Police as a law established agency, has a better role to play in the fight against gender-based Violence because, it has recorded at least 202 cases of sex and gender-based violence in 2022 according to the force Public Relations Officer Ahmed Wakili and also arrested a total of 326 suspected SGBV offenders in connection with the recorded crimes.

The police, according to the spokesperson, had in 2020 recorded 149 rape cases and other related offences and was able to arrest at least 257 suspects in connection with the cases.

Worried by the rising trends of sex-related offences, he said the command intensified “fight against the menace” which led to the decrease in the number of reported cases in Bauchi state.

The police said the drastic decrease in the number of cases this year was because of the intensive awareness creation and the command’s rigorous effort to prosecute offenders, adding that the command had set up an SGBV desk in all the Divisional Police headquarters as well as the four area commands in the state.

Rann: A Story Of Resilience And Hope

Published

Spread the love

Visiting Rann, a remote town in Borno state, Plan International Nigeria’s Communications Officer, Nubwa Bawuro Ibrahim found a community still struggling under the chokehold of 15 years of conflict in northeast Nigeria and the wider Lake Chad region.

Some 170 kilometres from the state capital of Maiduguri, Rann is one of many communities that have been ravaged by Boko Haram insurgents since the start of the conflict in 2009, leaving thousands dead and displacing millions from their homes.

According to UNICEF, since the start of the conflict, more than 20,000 people have been killed, more than 4,000 people abducted and 1.7 million remain displaced, most of them in Borno State.
On 14 January 2019, Rann was overrun by Boko Haram insurgents amid a general increase of attacks in the area bringing death and destruction, and forcing many inhabitants to flee across the border to the village of Bodo in neighbouring Cameroon.

Today, Rann is a place of desolation, isolation, and hardship. The realities of life in this border community are stark. Here, cars are a distant dream, replaced by the slow gait of donkeys and the tireless pedalling of bicycles, invoking memories of a bygone era.

Reaching Rann is not easy, travelling by helicopter is the only safe means of transport. The helicopter took off from Maiduguri at 11:15am, three hours later than originally scheduled due to the dusty and hazy conditions which were causing poor visibility.

This was my visit to Rann and the journey took longer than usual according to my fellow passengers who were regulars travellers on this route. The pilot had to make a number of detours due to the poor weather conditions, which kept us in the air for longer than expected.

As we approached the helipad, Rann’s desolate landscape was revealed, devoid of the characteristic bustle of a thriving community. We disembarked and ventured into the town, and the seemingly unreal situation became clear: Not a single vehicle or motorcycle in sight.

Accompanied by my colleague, Felicia, we met Musa and Babakaka, two community members who work with Plan International to implement our projects in Rann. Babakaka was my guide for the day. I asked him how we would get to our destination, he looked at me, smiled and said: “We have no car here, no tricycles. We only use donkeys.”
I took a deep breath and thought about riding on a donkey, something I have never done before even though they are found in the community I grew up in. I wondered what would happen if I were to fall and break my leg in this desolate place. Deciding against the donkeys, I went with the option of walking the long distance from the helipad to the location where the programme participants we had come to meet were waiting for us.

Setting off, the road was dusty with no respite of trees to provide shade. The determination in the eyes of my guide, Babakaka spurred me on. I checked my phone and realised there was no service; the only available mobile network was one from Cameroon. It took us 40 minutes of trekking under the hot desert sun to reach our destination.

The resilience of the Rann community, an estimated population of about 30,000 people, resonated with me through every encounter. The bustling market filled with goods from neighbouring Cameroon; the hard working determination of the mechanics mending bicycles – the fastest means of transportation here, and the eagerness in the eyes of the children to learn.

There are only two schools in Rann. One school lacks basic necessities including desks and chairs so the students have to sit on the bare floor to learn. The other school was built nine years ago but has never been used.

Despite these challenges, a beacon of hope shines in Rann. A European Commission Humanitarian Aid & Civil Protection (ECHO) funded project being implemented by Plan International is helping provide access to quality education and protection services, bringing hope for a brighter future.

11-year-old Fatima is among the children who attend the only operational school in Rann. She tells me her parents cannot afford a uniform, so she goes school in her everyday clothes. Like her, most school children lack uniforms and learning materials. This makes it hard to identify those children in school and those who are out of school.

Amid these challenges, Fatima is hopeful of a better future. “I want to become a doctor so I can treat people in my community,” she says. Even in the face of insurgency, hunger crisis, and unpredictable weather, the determination of the people of Rann to thrive remains undimmed.

Through the ECHO project, which started in December 2023, Plan International is renovating the two schools and equipping them with furniture and school supplies, as well as providing students with uniforms and learning materials, and training teachers.

Humanitarian activities are difficult to implement in Rann due to the inaccessible roads which are often flooded by the release of excess water from the Lagdo Dam in Cameroon, trapping people in the town and preventing access to and from the community. The risk of attack by insurgents is also ever present.

Leaving Fatima, I make the 40-minute return walk back to the helipad with a sweet-bitter feeling.
As I fly back to Maiduguri where Plan International Nigeria’s humanitarian hub in the northeast is located, the things I saw in Rann are ingrained in my mind.

What stands out the most, was the hope in the eyes of the community members, especially the school head and students I met with. Their stories of survival are interwoven with inspiring feelings of hope. Rann’s resilience is plain to see.

Maigari’s special plan for education is aimed to address overstretched and deplorable condition of institutions of learning in the country, already, the agency had received a number of requests from public universities nationwide who were in dire need of the agency’s support.

He noted that though the agency had no capacity to address the entire needs of the Universities, however; said the agency’s intervention would go along way in alleviating some of their needs Some of these projects, worth billions of naira, commissioned and handed over to the beneficiaries, while some are under-way upon approval as prescribed under Section 40 (a) of the National Lottery Act, 2005, undoubtedly prove NLTF’s capability to annex and prudently deploy lottery revenue to significant economic development of Nigeria.

On these remarkable achievements, the agency under the leadership of Dr Bello Maigari received significant federal government recommendations through the Minister and Parmanent Secretary, Ministry of Special Duties and Inter- Governmental Affairs, Hon. Zephaniah Bitrus Jisalo and  Mrs. Ibiene Roberts, both commended the agency for it’s monumental programme that touched the lives of Nigerians.

With its consistency to quality adherence to best practices and building awareness on the value of lottery to modern life and its transformational legacy, as well as fostering understanding of the role of national lottery funding to the public.

Sourcing it fund through the national lottery, NLTF has awarded grants to applicants seeking funding for projects that transform and sustain social and economic welfare of people and communities.

These projects are helping to provide basic health-care needs in un-served and under-served areas of many communities, and also support latent skills acquisition for youths, education facilities, teaching and learning outcomes.

Today, the Fund has become a household name in Nigeria with virtually every senatorial district priding itself with one or two projects either commissioned or handed over, waiting commissioning or ongoing

Many sports federations, professional bodies and NGOs have benefitted
immensely from NLTF’ s sponsorships with outstanding results, especially in
sports, that have brought Laureates to the country.

Thus, in pursuant to Section 40 (a) of the National Lottery Act, 2005, projects by the Fund have reached every nook and cranny of Nigeria, from the remote village of llela in Sokoto State, to the creeks of Bayelsa State in the Niger Delta Region, and even up to the enchanting hills of Mambila Plateau in Taraba State.

NLTF is not exception from it globally counterparts, where Modern Lottery raise funds for development of critical infrastructure and other areas of the economy.

The NLTF, with its support to Renewed Hope Agenda of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu with the aims of transforming Nigeria, will continue to impact greatly on the society far beyond its current level, barely a few years of its establishment if the Nigerian Lottery/Gaming Industry is given the right attention by relevant authorities and favourable government policies that will engender a conducive environment for lottery operations and subsequent revenue generation in Nigeria.

The remarkable transformational leadership of Maigari is bringing new innovations and good governance in the lottery and gaming sector having implemented life-changing intervention programmes across the country deserves encomium and not condemnation.#
