Sacked Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi has dropped a bombshell.
He said; “Women hold the key to continuity of life, human progress and development. The progress of the nation depends on how women raise their children.”
“Culturally, we love and honour mothers. Therefore, I implore everyone to embrace the noble status of women not just at the workplace but from the early beginnings of a girl child’s life.”
“We must continue to dialogue and challenge the social values that continue to hamper progress in the area of gender equality. So, I will continue to advocate against child marriages under the age of 18.”
“I will advise more gender-specific engagements of women in sectors such as agriculture and the extractive industries.”
