The General Manager, Lagos State Office for Disability Affairs (LASODA), Mrs. Adenike Oyetunde-Lawal has urged the Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Agency (DSVA) to include Sign Language Instructors in their campaigns.

This, she noted, is to ensure Persons with Hearing Impairment understand their messages.


She made the call during a visit by the Executive Secretary, DSVA, Mrs. Titilayo Vivour-Adeniyi to LASODA in Alausa, Ikeja. 

According to the LASODA boss, the Agency is open to collaborations and will emulate DSVA in its campaigns.

“We appreciate this visit and I am very impressed with your activities. LASODA would like to collaborate with your Agency to ensure Persons with Disabilities are also educated on the need to say no to sexual violence.


“We have a lot to emulate from your Agency and believe this synergy will yield positive results as we set to achieve the objective of ensuring domestic violence issues are adequately addressed among Lagosians regardless of status, gender, or disability”, she noted.


In her response, Vivour-Adeniyi pledged to put in place necessary measures to ensure PWDs are also carried along in their campaign.

She added that she looks forward to working together with LASODA.
