Speaking on the importance of Girl-Child education, Mrs. Saraki said;
“Alongside Primary Healthcare, Primary Education is as crucial for our girls. Currently, 10.5 million children are out of school. Our young girls are not able to access the immense benefits of early childhood development that education brings are slim. Education is the key for development and prosperity, it is key for a girl's future to provide for herself, to understand her body and health and also so that she grows into a woman who knows her choices and decides what life she would like to lead. Education is power.
“Let us empower, educate our girls, so that they can truly survive, thrive and transform. Let us strengthen and invest in our primary healthcare services so we radically reduce our mortality rates, irrespective of location. Let Girls Learn, and Let Girls Lead!”
Mrs Saraki was represented by Mrs. Rachel Owan-Enoh, the wife of Senator John Owan-Enoh, Cross River Central, Chairman of the Senate Committee on Finance.
