President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday inaugurated the newly completed Ministry of Women Affairs Headquarters Building in Abuja with a pledge to end child marriage and boost girl-child education across the country.
Speaking at the event, the president noted with concern the increasing number of out-of-school children in the country, saying that the Federal Government would sustain on-going efforts to address the menace.
According to him, it is the collective duty of all to ensure that mothers of today and tomorrow are educated, encouraged and empowered.
In his words…..
‘‘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.
