When We Don’t Educate Girls, We Lose 50% Of Our High Value Workforce – Atiku
To commemorate the International Day of The Girl Child, 2019 presidential candidate and Nigeria’s former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, tweeted a photo of him and female school children with the caption “When we educate a girl, we educate a nation!”
Adding flesh to the words in a way that hinted towards a campaign promise, he said ” If I have to leave one legacy, this will be it.
When we don’t educate girls, we lose 50% of our high value workforce, 50% of intellectual resources. It’s unacceptable.”
Reacting to the post, a tweeter user said “This won’t make us vote for you.”
Another said “This was how you and OBJ deceived us before, now, we are wiser.”
