The wife of the Ogun State Governor, Dr. (Mrs) Olufunso Amosun has called on the public to be sensitive to the yearnings and plights of the girl child as she remained a vital change agent like her male counterpart.
Dr. Mrs Olufunso Amosun made the call during the 2017 International Day for Girl Child held at Ayetoro in North Local Government Area of the State.
Mrs Amosun said a girl child like her male counterpart has same features and endowment to achieve whatever set target and aspiration in life, adding that a girl child should not feel inferior in aspiring for any position in life and must not be gagged in any way.
‘’Both female and male child are created with same ability to aspire and achieve whatever goal they want to achieve, male child is not superior so female child too should not feel inferior, but see herself as somebody that is able to do what her male counterpart can do’’, she pointed out.
Speaking at the event, the Head of Service in the State, Mr Abayomi Sobande, appreciated the organiser of the programme and enjoined the older generations to assist the girl child at achieving their dreams and aspirations in life by accepting them as a special gender that could do what their male counterparts could do.
‘’Don’t look down on yourself, but aim for fame and don’t put out your flame’’, Sobande submitted.
