Famous actress, Ini Edo is in pains and cried out.
She said; “On this 11th day, nine years ago, the United Nations realised it was necessary to recognise the girl child.”
“It has been of great honor for the girl child to have a day to be marked and celebrated, but so far, have they really been celebrated and valued in Africa?”
“Another question to be asked. Religiously, we understand that all men are equal but in Africa, women aren’t anywhere close to being equal.”
“The girl child is the mother of all children, but in Africa, the girl child has no place and value.”
“We can only move forward by carrying the girl child along. Our society can only be a better place when the girl child can stand, represent and speak up for her people.”
“Today, I celebrate with all the girl children. It is our day, it is our time. Never relent in your pursuit in all that you do.”
“We are getting there, and we will be there God-willing. Happy Girl Child Day.”
