- Victor Ayeni

THe wife of Lagos State Governor, Dr Ibijoke Sanwo-olu, has urged women to address insecurity from the home.

Sanwo-olu expressed this on Wednesday during a one-day seminar for Muslim sisters with the theme, ‘Women, Obedience: Nexus For a Successful Home and Nation Building,’ at Lagos House, Ikeja.

Sanwo-olu stated that the insecurity, majorly caused by aggrieved youths, stemmed from the home to the community.

She said, “In this of insecurity all over the country, we need to go back and check where we got it wrong. The so-called youths out there that are annoyed were given birth to by women. Why is it that they are so annoyed with the system and are now fighting us?

“It is apt that we talk to our women to look back and retrace our steps and look at what correction we can give from the home front.

“In those days when we were much younger, every mother is the mother to every child in a community. When a child is roaming the street, the non-biological mother in the community would ask why the child is not in school.

“But we are not seeing much of that any more. We cannot continue like that because when trouble comes, it affects everybody.”
