The CS stated that the government, through her Ministry, is focusing on ensuring that every child including girls attends school without fail.

“It is for this reason that the government started the program that we are launching to this school and others in the country to ensure that no girl child in public school across the country misses a day in school,” she noted.

Addressing the residents, CS Kobia said the government has prioritized women empowerment and gender equality and has invested enormous resources to the welfare of women.
