ActionAid Nigeria, AAN, in has condemned sundry matters affecting women, children and the vulnerable population of Nigerians in politics, economy, security, health and education sub sectors.

This was contained in a press release issued by the Board of Trustees of ActionAid Nigeria, after a meeting to review the State of the Nation on the 11th day of December 2021.
In a statement made available to Daybreak today, AAN said it has reviewed developments in government, politics, the economy and security during the last quarter, particularly as they affect vulnerable groups: women, children, Persons with Disabilities (PwDs), and youths.

AAN condemned all forms of bullying in boarding schools in Nigeria in view of the recent Dowen  School killing of a 12 year old student.
It noted that the extreme cases of bullying, especially in Nigerian boarding schools, have become worrisome in recent times, adding that parents, school administrators, and relevant government educational authorities seem to be abdicating their responsibilities and duties to the children.

In the Banking sector AAN noted that there is a need for Government to advance the anti- corruption fight through a review of activities of commercial banks and implementation and proper sanctions for erring banks who act or transact businesses in manners contrary to their professional ethics and the laws of the land using as an example the trial of the former chairman of the defunct Pension Reform Task Team (PRTT), Abdulrasheed Maina.
AAN also condemned the incessant harassment of judicial officers which it said portends a bad omen for the principle of separation of power and the independence of the judiciary as a whole. And urged the executive arm of government to guard Nigeria’s democratic values by addressing the issue,

AAN expressed concern over the rising cases of COVID-19 in the country despite the efforts of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 and the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control in containing the spread of the dreaded coronavirus,
It noted that the rising cost of the outbreak for businesses and the global economy has taken a big toll on Nigeria’s organised private sector as the global crisis continues to have a toll on the struggling local economy.
However the organization condemned the human rights violations making rounds in the country but commended efforts of the states’ judicial panel of inquiry on SARS related abuse and other matters which it’s states has rekindled the hope of Nigerians particularly the youths in the country.
