Wife of the Governor of Ogun State Mrs Olufunso Amosun has advised school girls to be ambassadors of positive change.
The President of the UPLIFT Development Foundation, spoke during the 2016 International Day of the Girl organised by the Medical Women Association of Nigeria and UPLIFT Development Foundation in Abeokuta.
October 11 every year has been set aside by the United Nations as the International Day of the Girl. The theme for this year is: Girls’ Progress = Goals’ Progress: What Counts for Girls.
The governor’s wife advised them to acquire good education in order to be empowered with knowledge, noting that this would enable them to achieve their set goals in life.
“Endeavour to take advantage of the education given to you by your parents. Do not give up on yourself being a girl, but you should aim high and always say to yourself that I can do it, I will make it because if you think it, you will achieve it. Every girl-child deserves equal treatment like the male counterpart,” she said.
