Expelling Pregnant Schoolgirls, Leaving Boys That Impregnate Them, Discriminatory – Fayemi

Wife of Ekiti state governor, Bisi Fayemi, on Thursday, July 11, 2019, decried the practice of expelling pregnant girls from schools while allowing boys who impregnated them to continue their education.

Mrs. Fayemi, who expressed her feelings during a meeting in Ado-Ekiti with wives of coordinating directors and community development officers of the 16 local government councils in the state, described the measure as discriminatory.

She stressed that all girls have right to education, regardless of their pregnancy, marital or motherhood status.

According to her, pregnant girls face all kinds of punishments, including discriminating practices that deny them their right to education.

Fayemi expressed readiness of the state government to implement relevant laws, including the Child Rights Act, Gender Equality and other laws, to protect the interest of children.

She said that a sensitization campaign would hold in the state in August to increase awareness of the people on the importance of protecting the rights of children, particularly the girl-child.

In her remarks, the state commissioner for women affairs, Moji Fafure, solicited the support of women in the state for the Fayemi-led administration to fully achieve its goals for women and children.
