Malala Yousafzai Visits Osinbajo, ask FG to Declare Emergency in Education Sector

World youngest Nobel Prize Laureate who became popular for her education activisim in Pakistan, Malala Yousafzai was in Abuja yesterday to visit Acting President Yemi Osinbajo. The activist used the opportunity to call for a declaration of a state of a state of emergency in Nigeria's education sector. She also called for the implementation of the Child Rights Act by the three tiers of government. Malala became popular after she was shot and injured in 2012 by Taliban. See her words below.




“It was a very good meeting. I had very good response. I highlighted a few issues. The first was to ask the government to declare a state of emergency for education because the education of the Nigerian girls and boys is really important. The Federal, state and local governments should all be united for this. Secondly, the spending should be made public and thirdly, the Child’s Rights Act should be implemented in all states. I was really happy to hear positive response from the acting president that they are happy with the suggestion of implementing declaration of emergency in education and that they are happy to work more on education and that they are united. I am happy to hear positive responses from the ministers as well that they are ensuring that education is prioritised in every girl and in every boy and education in Nigeria is given priority. In the morning, I met Chibok girls and I was very happy at what the minister is doing to support the Chibok girls. I am really excited to see them going back to their homes and to their families and continuing their education. But I hope the other girls, who are still under abduction of Boko Haram, are released.”
