The immediate past Volta Regional Minister, Helen Adjoa Ntoso, has observed that sexual violence cases occur in rural communities against vulnerable young girls and women from homes with low income statuses.

According to her, some irresponsible men in society oftentimes woo young girls into sexual affairs and afterwards warm them never to tell anyone or face their wrath.

Madam Ntoso who is Member of Parliament for Krachi West advised irresponsible men in society to pay good money to have responsible women rather than taking advantage of ignorant young girls at very tender age for at very paltry amounts.

The MP made the call on the floor of Parliament in a contribution to a statement by Member of Parliament for Assin South condemning the recent defilement of a four-year old girl at Assin Adadientem in the Assin South District of the Central Region
The former Minster encouraged families to educate their young girls so that they do not become victims of irresponsible men.

The MP called on appropriate agencies such as the Gender, Children and Social Protection and the Social Welfare to take up the responsibility of care for affected children to relief their families off the challenges that arise as a result of situations.
