After I found out that my state of Origin -Osun state was the most FGM/C prevalent state, I decided to pay the King of my town a visit to discuss with him about how to end FGM/C in Iwo Land and I was delighted at the way our King took interest in the matter. He was not happy to hear that FGM/C was still being practiced.
His Imperial Majesty Telu 1, The Oluwo of Iwo Land, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi has been very supportive in helping to end Female Genital Mutilation in his land.
Today being the International Day of Zero Tolerance for Female Genital Mutilation is a day that I celebrate His Imperial Majesty, The Oluwo of Iwo Land, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi Telu 1, the End Cutting girls team and everyone working towards ending Female Genital Mutilation in their communities. Let's end this era where our girls are cut and wounded. Let's protect the girl child. Let's all come together to say NO to FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATION. Together, we can end Female Genital Mutilation in Nigeria.
