Sexual Violence: ILAW Joins NLC, Calls on FG to Ratify ILO Convention 190

In January this year, Uruguay became the first country to ratify and as at today, it remains the only country that has ratified the Convention. Ratification by Nigeria would make Nigeria the 2nd ratifying country and it would enable the Convention to come into force, twelve months after. Is Nigeria ready to make history and be counted among ILO member States that set the pace for establishing a framework for human progress and scoring victory for humanity on an international basis? This is the critical historical challenge that ratification or non-ratification of Convention 190 poses to the current Federal Government of Nigeria.
