IN what could be seen as a parting gift to victims of violence in Nigeria, out-going president, Goodluck Jonathan, on Monday May 25, 2015 signed The Violence Against People Prohibition (VAPP) Bill into law.

Presidential spokesman, Reuben Abati, said the signing ceremony was performed in Abuja, the nation’s capital.

Recall that Jonathan has been under heat in the last couple of weeks over signing some bills into law.

But, with his singular act, the out-going president will be judged kindly by women and other Nigerians in the years to come.
