With reports reaching us, the president of the federal republic of Nigeria, president Muhammadu Buhari , on Thursday in Abuja, declared that the Federal Government will sustain on-going efforts to end child marriage and improve girl-child education in the country.

Commissioning the headquarters building of the Federal Ministry of Women Affairs, President Buhari said it is the collective duty of all to ensure that mothers of today and tomorrow are educated, encouraged and empowered.

‘‘Our quest is to ensure that concerns of women, children, and other vulnerable citizens are given prominence and ultimately addressed.

‘‘A key priority of our government is the development and implementation of social inclusion and economic sustenance policies. Our determination is to ensure that economic growth and prosperity are felt by as wide a circle as possible.


‘In particular, we are laying great emphasis on education of the girl– child. The high level of young girls who are out of school or unable to complete school due to socio-economic pressures is disturbing and must be addressed.


‘‘The launch of the National Strategy to End Child Marriage, 2016 – 2021 has been the first critical step towards increasing children’s access to quality all-round education and enhancing the retention of the girl-child in our schools, ’’ the President said.

It was noted that the nigerian leader enjoined the Ministry to continue to champion and coordinate all matters relating to the plight of Nigerian women and the most vulnerable citizens, assuring Nigerian women of his continued support and determination to see that the Ministry delivers on this mandate.
