The Program manager, Monsurah Abdullah noted that federal government need to considered women’s morally right, gender equality and empowerment to fight against extreme poverty, hunger, and malnutrition in Nigeria.

She said: “this year theme was about dignity practice and “dignity” is not a vague idea; rather, it belongs to everyone. Many people in poverty today witness the denial and disdain of their dignity, particularly rural women.

“We aligned this initiative with Sustainable Development Goal 1 (SDG 1), which vows to eradicate extreme poverty everywhere by 2030, and reduce the proportion of women, men, and children of all ages living in poverty in all its dimensions by half.
