VP says her success shows there is no difference between a boy and a girl child in terms of capacity and resourcefulness.
The Vice-president of Nigeria, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo has congratulated Akam Ayo Blessing for emerging as the Best Female Basic Education Certificate Examination Candidate, with 17As and one C.
Osinbajo congratulated the girl for her excellent result when he received a delegation of girl child rights advocates from various schools for the annual celebration of the Girl Child Day on Wednesday, October 11, in Abuja
The VP said her success demonstrates that there is absolutely no difference between a boy and a girl child in terms of capacity and resourcefulness.
"Girls are not less intelligent or resourceful than boys. Only those who, for some reason or the other, want to deceive themselves would argue at all that there is a difference of any kind, especially in intelligence or capacity, between men and women.”
Osinbajo, however, renews commitment and assured the delegates of the release of the remaining Chibok girls who are kidnapped by Boko Haram members in April 2014.
