The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Umar, has expressed the Nigerian government’s commitment to end statelessness by tackling gender-based violence in the country.
She said the government is determined to end statelessness ”by developing regulations to eliminate gender-based discrimination”.
She made this known on Thursday when she led a Nigerian delegation to address a high-level segment on statelessness at the ongoing 70th Executive Committee (ExCom) session of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees programme in Geneva, Switzerland.
