Malala Yousafai urges Yemi Osinbajo to declare state of emergency on education sector

20-year-old activist, Malala Yousafzai has urged the Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo to declare state emergency in the education sector.

Speaking with State House reporters yesterday after a closed door meeting with Osinbajo at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, Malala said the first issue she highlighted was “to ask the government to declare a state of emergency for education because the education of the Nigerian girls and boys is really important.”

The Noble Laureate said she also asked the Federal Government to make the spending on education public and that the Child Rights Act be implemented in all states.

Malala said Osinbajo expressed delight over her suggestion on the state of emergency on education.

She added: “In the morning, I met Chibok girls and I was very happy at what the minister is doing to support the Chibok girls. I’m really excited to see them going back to their homes and to their families and continuing their education. But I hope the other girls who are still under abduction of Boko Haram are released.”
