Photos: Malala Yousafzai Visits President Jonathan, Donates $200,000 For Abducted Girls Education
The Pakistani girls’ education campaigner who arrived Nigeria yesterday visited the president today in Aso Villa in company of her father who accompanied her to Nigeria.
While speaking to journalists after her visit, Malala says the president had promised her that he would meet with the parents of the abducted girls and ensure they return back home safely.
In his remarks, President Jonathan said:
“I personally believe that since about 50 per cent of our population are female, we will be depriving ourselves of half of our available human resources if we fail to educate our girls adequately or suppress their ambitions in any way. We are therefore taking steps to curb all forms of discrimination against girls and women, and have also undertaken many affirmative actions on their behalf.
