Minister of women affairs, Mrs. Pauline Tallen has called on well-meaning Nigerians to promote girl child education.

Tallen made the call while speaking at the global reunion and annual general meeting (AGM) of the Old Students Association of Federal Government Girls’ College (FGGC), Bida, held in Abuja. “I call on all well-meaning Nigerians to support the education of the girl child and every child and to mop up support for the government to ensure that no child is left behind on the street,” she said. The minister said without children, there is no future, adding that education is the greatest asset that can lead to meaningful development in Nigeria. “The education of the girl-child is key because she’s a mother. An educated mother will bring up children and her family well, she will make sure our children go to school, be it boy or girl. “If you educate women, you are educating the community and the nation at large. Therefore, let us ensure that the girl child is educated, not just a girl child, every child is educated, because our children are the future,” she said.
