Director-General of Good Leadership Organization, GLSO, Nigeria, Bridget Torbua Igbauke, has called for the major participation of women in the front lines of conflict resolution as they are major stakeholders in cases of conflict and displacement.
Igbauke stressed that since women are the ones most affected by violence and conflict, it was therefore contradictory that peace negotiations were limited to men only.
The women rights advocate, who thanked President Muhammadu Buhari, Zamfara State Government, the security operatives, and  Nigerians for their fervent prayers for the release of the abducted schoolgirls, said since women are messengers of peace and leaders of moderation and equilibrium, therefore access to peace process should not be left in the hands of men alone.
“It seems contradictory that men often take the space in discussing peace as if violence and peace processes are the exclusive preserve of men. No one or group of persons should stop women,” she averred.
Igbauke argued that the absence of women as peacemakers in most peace talks could well be considered as an aberration as conflicts affect women more.
“It affects them more since they are often left to cater for their children and children of displaced extended family members and sometimes in refugee camps,” she stated.
Igbauke said that the participation of women was key to having their voices heard and to protecting the future of their children as well as their properties, and by extension, Nigeria.
She also said women needed to drum the messages of peace to the ears of their spouses, brothers and children so they could espouse unison for the sustainability of peaceful coexistences amongst Nigerians, and that there was strength in our diversity, and with unity and support for our leaders to achieving good leadership, Nigeria will compete favourably in the comity of nations.
