GSAI frets over 50% reduction in gender budgeting 

The Gender Strategy Advancement International (GSAI) has expressed worry over the 50% reduction of gender budgeting narrative within the Nigeria’s budget.

The executive director, Gender Strategy Advancement International, Dr. Adaora Onyechere Sydney Jack, said this while speaking to journalists recently at the training of 20 reporters and editors on Gender Accountability Reporting, organised by Gender Strategy Advancement International (GSAI) and supported by MacArthur Foundation and Woke Soyinka Center for Investigative Journalism in Abuja.

She  stated that the female journalists are so promising that a lot of them would want to come on board and also come to the field, but they are not certain that they will be paid for their merit.

“They are not certain of their safety and not certain that they will have insurance. As journalists, we need to go back to the drawing board as organisations such as NAWOJ, NUJ and also the National Assembly, Chairman Committee on Information and Media should look into these things and begin to rethink the policies,” she stated.
