Charles Inojie Discusses The Motivation Behind The Movement Against Domestic Abuse

The legendary actor Charles Inojie has shared the source of inspiration for the “Make We Halla” campaign, which aims to end domestic abuse in Nigeria.

Inojie and actor Ali Nuhu collaborated in March to inform the public about the detrimental effects of remaining silent about issues pertaining to domestic abuse in the nation.

Additionally, they posted a video encouraging Nigerians to come forward if they see domestic abuse taking place in their neighborhoods.

In order to help the campaign, they also urged Nigerians to take part in the #MakeWeHalla challenge.

In an interview with Wazobia FM, Inojie said he was inspired to begin the campaign to raise awareness of the need for people to speak up because “when we all keep quiet, the perpetrator of this act of abuse seems confident to do more”.

“When we all keep quiet, the abuser, perpetrator of this act of abuse seems confident to do more. But when we speak up and against the abuse without being violent, it sends a signal to the perpetrator that he should desist,” he said.

“This evokes what prompted myself and Ali to decide to join our voices for this matter. We thought about it and arrived at the fact that we all are guilty if we continue to keep quiet, and watch domestic abuse happen around us.

“Make We Halla’ is actually a call to action to everybody around to say if you see something that is bad, speak out and do not keep quiet.”

Domestic violence is one of the hardest things a person can endure. You love your other half so much that you tend to excuse their behavior when you shouldn’t. No one deserves to be abused, and no one should stay with someone who is abusive, but sometimes it’s not so easy to just walk away. Everyone has the human right to live in safety and free from violence and abuse.

Live with Purpose, Love with Passion. Remember to be happy

One ❤️❤️❤️
