THE GIRL-CHILD AS ENDANGERED SPECIE FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
he Girl-Child is the future of Nigeria attaining the Sustaining Development Goals yet she is still confronted with issues which includes but not limited to Rape, Early Marriage, Female Genital Mutilation, Human Trafficking and Kidnappings from School.

The Girl-Child is the future of Nigeria attaining the Sustaining Development Goals yet she is still confronted with issues which includes but not limited to Rape, Early Marriage, Female Genital Mutilation, Human Trafficking and Kidnappings from School. It is unfathomable that in a bid to get an Education which is the bedrock of any normal  society, Girls have been kidnapped from schools swimmingly as  seen in the kidnap of  250 Girls from the Government Secondary School Chibok Borno State, 110 from the Science Secondary School Dapchi Yobe State of which 15 year old Leah Sharibu is still in Custody with recent  media reports of Girls still being kidnapped from school. Girl-Force Unscripted and Unstoppable 2019 theme of Day of the Girl-Child can only be achievable when Government put in place sustainable mechanisms which drive development as well as protecting the Girl-Child and providing her with access to unlimited opportunities to not only enable her control her future but meaningfully contribute to National Development.

Hello Dear Oluwatoyin,

How are you? This is very sad:-( Why do you think so many girls are being kidnapped? How can it be curtailed or stopped?

Dear Olabisi,
How are you? I hope you are doing well... It's unfortunate story about girls in your country. We knew about the culture aspect as regards early marry, FGM etc however I am very worried about the kinapping.

Why the kinapping? Has it been brought to the fore fronts of the authorities? And what are they doing about it? Are the kinappers caught? And is the law dealing with them?

I have a lots of questions now hmm. Thanks for sharing and hear from you.
Regards

Hi Oluwatoyin, I agree with you. Kidnapping has become a business in Nigerian and girls and women are the target but we will keep speaking until the government hears us and responds. Thanks for this information and stand you are taking.
