Nigerian actor and comedian, Afeez Oyetoro, aka ‘Saka’ has said that the Girl-Child has a great future in Nigeria.
The comedian made this affirmation in an interview with journalists on the sidelines of the unveiling of the Advocacy Films in Lagos.
According to the comedian, the girl-child in Nigeria, unlike in the past, is competing with her male counterparts in the education sector as well as other spheres.
He said “There is a better future for the girl-child in Nigeria unlike before where girls were not allowed to go to school. In those days the girl child was forced into early marriage. Now, parents have seen the need for education of the girl-child.”
Afeez who advised female students to be of good conduct at home, and on campus, also urged them to remain focused in their academic pursuit.
