Oshiomhole’s Pretty Wife Reveals Key Priority For Edo State Government is Female Education

The pretty wife of the Edo state governor  Lara Oshiomhole, has announced that the state government will  always give priority to girls’ education.

According to news reports, Mrs Oshiomhole made the passionate statement on Tuesday, August 18, in Benin at the 2015 edition of the Nigerian Girls Guide Association National Camp Meeting.

“Edo state is a strong believer in the training of the youth, especially the girl child and we believe strongly that whenever you educate a girl, you educate the family and you have educated the nation.

“I want to thank you for what you are doing here and I urge you to keep it up. I am very happy to be here in your midst today. I have heard a lot about the Girls Guide Association and I came here today to see what you have been doing and I am pleased with what I have seen here today,” the First Lady said.
 
Lara Oshiomhole was decorated as patron of the Nigerian Girls Guide Association, Edo state chapter, by Maria Gorretti-Sule, chief commissioner of the association.




Maria Goretti-Sule, the chief commissioner of the association, thanked Mrs. Oshiomhole for her presence at the camp, noting that her visit would greatly boost the organization. She also took the opportunity to express gratitude to the state government for its support and assistance to the association over the years.

Goretti-Sule asked for help in introducing Girls Guide into the schools so as to help ‘catch them young’ and inculcate the tenets of the association in the girls.

Mrs Oshiomhole was later invested as the patron of Nigerian Girls Guide Association, Edo state chapter.

Meanwhile, Governor Adams Oshiomhole hosted a luncheon during which more than 100 internally displaced children living at the International Christian Centre camp in Edo were reunited with their families.
