Ado Ekiti — Wife of Ekiti State Governor, Erelu Bisi Fayemi has expressed her readiness to lobby the National Assembly for the passage of the Equal Opportunities Bill for it to have national application, just as Governor Kayode Fayemi has assented to the bill making it a law in the state.
Speaking during the signing of the bill to law by the governor in Ado Ekiti, Mrs. Fayemi also allayed fears that the law was intended to give preference to women over men, saying it would only allow for the less privileged in the society to have their own voices heard.
Erelu Fayemi also explained that both men and women will be protected from violence through the provisions of the law, adding that nobody would be discriminated against in any form, as the law was applied.
The governor’s wife noted that giving equal opportunities to both sexes did not mean that men should be derelict in the discharge of their responsibilities at home.
