Just like AirwavesReport.com hinted weeks back about former governor of Zamfara State; Senator Sanni Yerima’s new found support for women development, the man has remained even more committed in this attitude.
During the recent celebration of annual International Women Week, Sen. Yerima was again in his element to identify with the opposite sex, especially his clamour for girl child education which was the central topic during the women week. The arrow-head of the International Women’s Day in Africa, ONE Campaign during the week sensitized the general public on the need to give proper education to the girl child and aptly came with a decision to give education to over 130 million girls in Africa through an initiative project tagged #GirlsCount campaign, an initiative that has rallied citizens and leaders from around the world and in Nigeria to bring a spotlight on this crisis and demand action from global leaders to end this crisis. Sen. Yerima readily supported the idea and he has been doing this for many girls over the years, even though he does not make any noise about it. 'Women are beautiful and they are more beautiful when they have education. My wife has a voice and all women should have a voice, I support women education, Yes, I do', he retorted. Meanwhile Sen. Ahmad Sani Yerima has advised the general public and school libraries that they should begin to play relevant roles and contribute to the eradication of discriminations against women. Girls’ education spurs exponential positive effects on social and economic development for generations to come; even educating girls secures the future of Nigeria. #GirlsCount is uniting people to make the scale of this crisis clear and to call on leaders to act urgently.
