Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki yesterday signed the Violence Against Persons Prohibition Bill 2019.
He said Edo people had respect for women, wondering why people should perpetrate violence against women.
“I urge women to support our government, because as government, we cannot do it alone. We will not support violence against women from anybody and we will ensure that justice is served in these cases. This is why we sign the bill” he said.
