Wife of the Ekiti state governor, Erelu Bisi Fayemi has berated the high rate of the out of-school girls in the state.
Erelu made the statement at Ilejemeje and Oye local government areas during her tour of the state with a promise that no Ekiti son or daughter’s education will be truncated under any guise
She appealed to parents in the state to embrace the free education policy of the Dr.Fayode Fayemi administration especially the policy which seeks to keep pregnant girls in school even after delivery.
The first lady however reiterated that the move was not to encourage promiscuity among girls but to ensure that they attain their full potential and be useful to themselves and the country.
Aside the empowerment tools and the OUNJE ARUGBO distributed at the venue, Erelu Fayemi also gave out sanitary pads to the female students who were present at the venue with a charge to concentrate on their studies and shun deceitful advances from the opposite sex.
The tour is expected to continue tomorrow at Ekiti West and Efon.
