Female Circumcision: Ekiti reads riot act to fathers, mothers-in-law

Ekiti state government has read riot Act to fathers and mothers-in-law that still engage in female genital mutilation (circumcision)

The Gender/Family Planning coordinator in the Ministry of Health, Mrs Olukemi Akinleye, read the Act on behalf of the state government, while inaugurating the Local Technical Committee on Female Genital Mutilation, (FGM) in Ikere-Ekiti.

She tasked fathers and mothers-in-law to assist relevant stakeholders in prevailing over their wives and daughters in the society to stamp out Female circumcision.

She stressed that the involvement of the head of every house and mothers-in-law in the stoppage of the scourge became imperative due to the fact that no woman would circumcise her child without the consent of the father.
