The Women’s Wing of the Christian Council of Nigeria (WOWICCN) has called for sex education at homes to reduce cases of rape and violence against women in the society.

National President of the Association, Rev. Omatsola Williams, gave the advice at a rally organised by association tagged: `Say No to Violence against Children’ on Saturday in Abuja.

She advocated the teaching of sex education in schools, homes, Churches, and Mosques so that the children would learn through different approved means and not from the wrong people.

“Sex education is not being taught in schools anymore, parents don’t even teach children sex education in their homes.

“Nigerians should wake up and have a world free of rape and violence on our children, women or man-to-man.

“It is still violence when young boys now are been kept in hotels for men to go and meet them; violence is not only when you are giving a physical combat.

According to her, `violence on our children is taking a new dimension, which we cannot stand.

“Our children are sexually assaulted be it boy or girl; our under aged children are been sold like goods; our children are used to perform rituals, where are we heading?

“Parents in the name of poverty go to the extent of selling children or encouraging our young girls to be pregnant and produce children to sell to people out there.

“This is not Christian like; women claiming tit for tat, that is not the kind of life we were been brought up with,’’ she said.

Williams advised that Nigerians should go back to the drawing board and look into the way of living with each other and everybody should be each other’s keeper.

“I want us to have a change of heart, calm ourselves down, think inwards and think of the future of our children, there no reason why we will not harness our thoughts together,’’ William said.

Earlier, Mrs Uzoaku Williams, National Secretary, WOWICCN, said that the foundation of every child matters a lot because character formation begins from the home.

Williams noted that the virtue inculcated in children has a lot of role to play in the development of the children.

“The foundation of every child starts from home; mothers have a role to play in the homes.

“We should be agents of change in the virtues we inculcate into our children, to be the what we deserve to be and to be a watch eye to the children.

“In our societies we have seen situations whereby children will not be able to talk, rape of little children of different age groups, rape of women, violence against women, child trafficking and prostitution,’’ she said.

She also called on governments to take up their responsibility and come up with solutions that would end the barbaric act of rape and violence against children and women.
