By virtue of section 12 of the constitution, of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999, CEDAW, when passed into law by the National Assembly, can not be applicable in the states unless it is ratified by at least two- thirds of the federation, as a result of this, the NCAA at the state level has been working towards the domestication of CEDAW in at least 23 state's Houses of Assembly, CIRDDOC has been at the fore front of this work. It is worthy of note to mention that Anambra state House of Assembly is the first to the Gender and Equal Opportunities Bill into law.
