Mrs. Dolapo, wife of Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo has decried the various abuses women and girls are being subjected to in the country.
The Vice President’s wife made this remark while speaking at a service to mark this year’s Mother’s Day at the Aso Villa Chapel, Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Mrs. Osinbajo lamented that girls who were supposed to be mothers of tomorrow were no longer safe in the country.
“The girls are under threat,” Mrs. Osinbajo said
She said Nigerians must join hands to help the girl-child.
Her words, “What do you teach them because they cannot give what they don’t have? The mothers of tomorrow cannot be mothers if they don’t have what it takes.
“I thank God for what mothers do; they take care of the child, train the child, etc. I thank God for the joy mothers bring. I pray for more grace, more wisdom and more strength for all mothers.”
