of Gender Journalists for Women and Cultural Advancement (NoGJWCA) president
Pateh Baldeh has said that the media plays a crucial role in peace building and
stability of a nation.
Speaking to journalists on Thursday at the official closing of a three-day gathering of the working group on peace building for West Africa, Mr. Baldeh said they will continue to advocate and meet with relevant authorities to maintain a steady fight against early marriage and FGM.
“Government has the political will to support women. What we need to be doing right now is sensitize people on peace building because if there is no peace, there would be no meaningful development.
