Girl Child education: I’m currently sponsoring 200 girls – Nasarawa First Lady
By Orjime Mvendaga
The Nasarawa State first lady, Silifat Abdullahi has said that girl child education and training of more women especially widows is her number one priority.
The first lady who is also the CEO of SAS Hope Foundation insisted that education and empowerment of more women would reduce the number of abuses and also help in national development.
The first lady said this Thursday while speaking with journalists at the Nasarawa State Leisure Office Abuja.
She said, “I’m not happy about what the girls and women especially widows are facing in this country.
“Some people will marry widows just because of their money and when they finish with the money they then drive them away. We want to take action on that. So we are working hand in hand with the traditional rulers, community leaders and religious leaders in Nasarawa State in order to tackle this matter.”
She stated that she included girl child education in her foundation Silifat Abdullahi Sule Hope Foundation (SAS Hope Foundation) and presently I have about two hundred girls that I’m sponsoring and most of them are orphans, adding that if you educate a girl you educate the nation.
She also said that she empowered about one hundred and fifty widows that she trained them in skills acquisitions and at the end she offered them twenty thousand naira each to start something.
