Our Men Are Very Irresponsible - Borno Governor Shettima

Governor Kashim Shettima of Borno state today spoke in support of Girl-child education at the Nigerian Economic Summit in Abuja.
The governor also castigated child marriage which is common in his region – North Ease Nigeria. Addressing the Summit, Governor Shettima said, ‘’ Education is one game changer. Access to Western Education is what can transform the lot of a people.’’

‘’ What can we do about the education of the girl child. The correlation between women health and education.

"I am sorry, but our men are irresponsible. How can you go and marry a 13yr old girl. Let us educate the girl child. Our men are very irresponsible. They send out their wives in favor of under-aged girls,’’ the Governor said. 

On Gender equality, Governor Shettima said, ''We are putting the ownership of houses in Borno in both the women & men's names. So the women are empowered.''
