The annual conference of the women judges took place in Abuja and Miss Nkem Uwaje (MD Futuresoft) went to represent Mr. Chris Uwaje who was unable to deliver his presentation at the conference. The presentation focused on child abuse on the Internet and what can be done to protect Nigeria's children from this ever growing phenomenon.

By the age of 21, children would have been exposed to:

  • More than 250,000 acts of violence through television, movies and video games.
  • More than 2,000 hours, on average, of pornographic images that reduce the dignity and value of human life.
  • Several thousand hours of music in which the lyrical content promoted anger, hostility, disrespect for authority, selfishness and radical independence.
This exposure is through TV, Radio, Movies, Magazines, CDs and Adverts. The Internet combines all of these channels into 1 single repository of unfiltered content.
