What Malala Told Osinbajo In Abuja

Pakistani ‘schoolgirl’ and Nobel Laureate, Malala Yousafzai met with Acting President Yemi Osinbajo yesterday, in a closed-door meeting.

The girl-child education activist has however revealed what she, alongside her seven delegates, discussed with the Acting President.

According to her, she specifically requested three things from Osinbajo.

“I met the Acting President of Nigeria, and the goal of the meeting was to highlight that the government on the local level, on the state and on the national level must
be united in the fight for education. It should be the top priority, so I asked him to declare a state of emergency for
education. I had three specific asks, one was to increase spending by 300 percent to triple the current spending.

The second was to make all the spending public, and then my third
was to implement the child rights act in all states, so they should make sure it happens.
These were my three asks from the acting president”, she stated.

Recall, the young lady who survived Taliban attacks in her home-country was earlier in Nigeria in 2014, pressurizing the then President Goodluck Jonathan on the quick return of abducted Chibok Girls.
