Again, Olori Wuraola Ogunwusi, wife of the Ooni of Ife, HRM Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has lent her voice to the fight against domestic violence in our society.
Penultimate week, the woman of substance led a campaign tagged “Walk Against Domestic Violence” in the streets of Lagos.
A number of female personalities, including star actresses in Nollywood, joined her in the walk, as they carried banners with screaming inscriptions against the condemnable act.
Olori Wuraola is not new to being in the forefront of the struggles for the cause of the womenfolk in the country, particularly in the South-west.
In the past years, she has been reaching out to her target audience through her non-governmental organisation, The House of Oduduwa Foundation.
A few months ago, she donated relief materials to some IDPs in Ife, organised a ‘Give Back Concert’ in Lagos at the Convention Centre of the Eko Hotel, Lagos and also executed ‘The Orphan Aid Project’.
It will be recalled that she was part of the United Nations delegates to a conference in New York, US a few months ago, where she was one of the six international panelists; she shared her views on ‘Safeguarding and protecting the endangered cultural heritage in time of conflict’. Her contributions as gathered, earned her a standing ovation from the audience.
