Gender parity

Tags:

The Nigerian Federal Government is set to ensure a drastic reduction of cases of gender disparity in the nation’s education sector.

To achieve this objective, it has promised to ensure that the strategies for the improvement of girl-child education are disseminated to all the states of the federation.

The Minister of State for Education, Mr. Ezenwo Wike, said this in Abuja on Friday.

A statement from his Special Assistant (Media), Mr. Simeon Nwakaudu, quoted the minister as speaking at the 11th Girl Child Education National Steering Committee Meeting.

He promised he would work with all stakeholders to scale up programmes geared towards improving girls’ education.

He added that the ministry was addressing the drop-out syndrome of pupils through the rehabilitation of schools and advocacy visits to states to sensitise planners and ensure adequate community participation, especially by women.

“The Federal Ministry of Education recognises the critical role of girl-child education and has made it a top priority, hence the scale up of girls’ education interventions to all states of the federation,” he said.
