FCT TRADITIONAL RULERS WIFE PARTNERS NGO TO STRENGTHEN JUSTICE SYSTEM
By pamela okemiri
The Association of wives to FCT traditional rulers in conjunction with NGOs are making attempts to respond beyond rhetoric to the GBV challenges in the communities.
This effort is intensified by CHRICED with support from John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation for various initiatives that seeks to strengthen the traditional justice system in combat with Sexual and Gender based violence.
They facilitated the creation of a self regulated code of standard that outlines the generally accepted process that should be used to administer justice for cases reported to each palace.
They provide Palace reporting tools for SGBV cases and set up virtual reporting dashboard accessible within the palaces only.
They trained the traditional rulers wives and Palace secretaries on how to support survivors of SGBV.
The established a dedicated telephone Hotline to directly access the nearest chiefs wives for a confidential hearing of any SGBV incidence.
FCT traditional institutions involvement in the fight against SGBV can now be seen as a trustworthy method of delivering justice rather than a way to obstruct it. And more institutional support from various civil society, international organizations, ministries and department in the FCT administration is required to partner with FCT traditional justice system to combat SGBV.
