The noble initiative of charming and highly gifted actress-cum-TV host, Tricia Esiegbe Kerry, 'Psychologist', has received a huge boost with the support of Major Hamza Al-Mustapha.

'Psychologist' is a project set up to fight the scourge of rApe in the Nigerian and African societies and since its inception, several high ranking personalities in the society and bodies have thrown their full weights behind it, including state governments and the Nigeria Police.

Recently, Al-Mustapha, through his APUDI Foundation, partnered Tricia Eseigbe's 'Psychologist' to totally fight against child sexual abuse in Nigeria.

APUDI is an acronym for Al-Mustapha Peace, Unity And Development Initiative and was established with a vision of building a peaceful, harmonious united Nigeria, with a mission to develop a vibrant and productive citizen that can co-exist peacefully across our communities.

Al-Mustapha, Muhammed Sale Hassan (Director Skills & Entrepreneurship) and John Fashanu (Director Sport Development) of the APUDI Foundation received Tricia and her 'Psychologist' team in his Abuja office.

Speaking during the occasion, Al-Mustapha lamented about the plight of the vulnerable children that have experienced sexual abuse and molestation in the hands of their molesters; he commended the courage and passion of Tricia's 'Psychologist' initiative, and promised the APUDI team will give all the necessary support to make the partnership successful.

Tricia is known for her fight for the people. She has gained recognition and admiration for her doggedness in the fight against child molestation. The loving wife of Kingsley Kerry has no doubt paid her dues in the Nigerian showbiz industry as a seasoned actress, producer, TV host, successful entrepreneur and a philanthropist.

In 2013 she launched her child sexual abuse humanitarian/public awareness campaign project called 'The Psychologist'. The programme is designed to expose sexual predators in Nigeria, and to create a support platform for victims of child molestation, also to get the authorities to do more in supporting our children.

The Psychologist has been on a nationwide tour with several state governors, organizations and high profile individuals, endorsing and partnering the project to fight against child sexual abuse in Nigeria.
