Delta State government has expressed disappointment over the low placement of the State on the National Gender-Based Violence (GBV) Dashboard.

The Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Women Affairs, Community and Social Development, Mrs Oghenekevwe Agas made this known during a one-day Step-Down Training for Social Welfare Officers of the ministry and other caregivers on the use of the National GBV dashboard in Asaba.

While pointing to the cases recorded in the State, with some ongoing and some convicted by the court, she said the incidents were yet to be updated on the dashboard.

She explained that since the COVID-19 era, sensitisation on GBV became necessary due to the alarming rate in Sexual Gender-Based Violence (SGBV), adding that “it eventually caught the attention of the federal government and it created a situation room to monitor and collate data from the various states.”

The Resource Person, Mrs. Olivia Akponehwe, took the participants on an interactive session on how to use the National Dashboard.

Akponehwe, who spoke on the various forms of SGBV, pointed out that apart from rape, harassment and verbal abuse were also other forms of GBV.

She explained that victims were normally referred to as survivors and advised the Area Officers not to be judgemental in their dealings with survivors, but rather, assure them of protecting their confidentiality.
