COMFORT UDOM ,A survivor of FGM and other speakers at the seminar organised by Cee-Hope Foundation on Monday 6th Of February 2023 to commemorate the lnternational Day On Zero Tolerance For Female Genital Mutilation say More Involvement of Male Folks and communication are critical to winning the battle against the harmful cultural practice of Female genital mutilation .

According to the Survivor of FGM Comfort Udoh , there are some girls that died in the process of circumsizing them and there are some going through a lot but can’t say anything. They just keep quiet. “It is an evil that is eating us in this clime.

“It is evil barbaric, it is not a good thing. Government, individual should make a very urgent decision to stop the menace.

“You don’t need to be quiet, we should increase the awareness in religious homes. The churches and the mosques. Anywhere we find people gathering, we should educate them. So many people are not aware, some are aware but they can’t speak up.

The Founder of Cee-Hope Mrs Betty Abbah, at the event said 6th February is globally recognised to beem a search light to end Female genital mutilation (FGM) which is very prevalent in Nigeria, and by extension Africa and some parts of Asia”

“We have seen from the event today that FGM has no medical benefits, it is just about power and control over the women’s body. We have seen the devastating effect on women’s sexuality. The health, psychological implications .

“This is the time to talk about the development of women and men keeping the same pace in terms of development. This is not the time to mutilate anyone’s body, we are not in a slavery era neither are we in a stone age.

“We should not accommodate any form of harmful cultural practices because it is just not necessary. We should prioritize the right things. We should do the right things. We should ensure women and girls have equal rights. We should not allow culture that allow men to control women’s body

The Executive Director of Women’s right and Health Project who doubles as the Manager of Ireti resource center Lagos, Bose Ironsi said Nigeria is still ranking very high in terms of prevalence of female genital mutilation. That there is need to intensify awareness so that people won’t inherit bad culture but a good one.

“Nigeria is still ranking very high in terms of prevalence of FGM, and I know a lot of works had been done on this regard.

“The existence of the VAPP law compels the perpetrators of FGM to commit the immoral act underground. If you really look at it, there is no medical reasons why FGM should be done. They are doing it for cultural reasons which is against the right of the female. Culture is dynamic, it changes but the people don’t want to change.
