Umeseaka for sacrificing alot for the betterment of the girl child, adding that posterity would judge her kindly.
Responding, Hon. Umeseaka commended GIFMAG boss, Amb. Ferdinand for championing the fight against girl child abuse, charging girls to say ‘NO’ to randy men and stick to it.
She decried that most young girls dress scantily, exposing their bodies, lamenting that being naked in the name of fashion does not make anyone beautiful, rather attracts rapists.
In her words: “Dressing well does not make you look trashy but classy. You can properly cover up and still look beautiful. Dress the way you would want to be addressed. Don’t dress like a prostitute, rather dress decently”.
The governor’s aide urged girls to avoid premarital sex, conduct themselves properly and avoid staying at odd places at odd time with the opposite sex, adding that they would fulfill their glorious destinies by sticking to these instructions.
She also promised to devout more time and efforts to better the course of the girl child through strategic awareness on Gender Based Violence (GBV).
