Justice Nyesom-Wike calls for the education of the girl-child 

Wife of the Rivers State Governor, Justice Eberechi Suzzette Nyesom-Wike has stated that education of the girl-child will lead to gender equality in the future.
Speaking after the Thanksgiving Service to mark this year’s international women day at the Saint Peter’s Anglican Church in Rumuepirikom on Sunday , Justice Eberechi Suzzette Nyesom-Wike urged families to prioritise girl-child education.
She said that the level of women education determines  the level of their contribution  to the development of the society.
The Rivers Governor’s Wife noted that her programme Rivethics which runs on five radio stations weekly, educates and informs women on key areas for social cohesion and development.
She emphasised that for the attainment of gender equality, necessary steps must be taken to empower women with the right education and information.
She said: “If we give every girl the opportunity to access education, it would form the needed foundation for them to contribute meaningfully  to societal growth”.
Also speaking, Deputy Governor Ipalibo Harry Banigo said the Wike administration is committed  to promoting women participation in government.
She noted that Rivers women have been projected positively  under the leadership of Governor Wike, with several of them occupying positions of authority where they serve as role models for the girl-child.
Deputy Governor Ipalibo Harry Banigo noted that the administration is also reaching out to martket women and rural women through skills acquisition programmes  to empower them.
The event witnessed  a special thanksgiving procession by Rivers women led by the Wife of the Rivers State Governor and the Deputy Governor.
A Special 2018 International Women’s Day Anniversary Cake was cut at the Thanksgiving Service.
Archbishop of Niger Delta Province, Rt Rev Ignatius Kattey prayed God to continue to empower women to contribute to rapid  development of the state.
