  1. Good initiative by the State Government to prevent an explosion of prostitution. When widows and their kids are left on their own to cater and fend for themselves and their families, the result is prostitution. A solution is to get the ones willing to remarry to be under the care and protection of a man.
    This was the major reason the explosion of prostitution among widows of fallen soldiers who were condemned to themselves after the end of the Nigerian Civil War and those who were still old enough to remember will attest to this fact.
