Nasarawa Commissioner Tasks Parents On Girl-Child Education, Proper Upbringing


 Hajiya Halima Jabiru, Nasarawa State Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Development, has urged parents in the State to  prioritise  their daughters’ education.

The commissioner made the call at a meeting with members of the National Council for Women Societies (NCWS), Nasarawa State Chapter, in Lafia on Saturday

She also urged parents to ensure proper upbringing of their children  to curb moral decadence.

“Parents should give adequate priority to the education of their children and wards, especially the female children for them to be self-reliant and contribute to the development of the state.

“Education is the best legacy parents should leave for their children. It is the bedrock of socio-economic development in any society,”she said.

According to her,  the development of any society depends on the quality of education that is given to a girl child, hence the need for parents to embrace  that direction.

The commissioner, who was represented by Hajiya Fati Mohammed, Deputy Director in the ministry,also urged women to form cooperative societies for self-development and for the  development of the state.

She assured of the ministry’s readiness to partner with any organisation that wanted to  improve the lives of women and children in the state.

The commissioner urged members of NCWS and people of the state to support Gov.Abdullahi Sule’s administration to succeed beyond 2023.

Earlier, Mrs Mary Meshi, the State Chairman of NCWS,said that the meeting was aimed at discussing how to move the association forward.

Meshi said that the association also wanted to look at ways women could actively participate in politics in order to contribute their quota to the development of the state.

She also urged the women to continue to bring up their children in the way that would help societal development.
