“Also, parents that enrolled a girl-child in school will get higher payment than those who enroll boys.

“The state government has taken full responsibility for the education of the orphans.

“If we fail to care and educate them, they will certainly become the dreaded Frankenstein monster that will rise tomorrow to consume us all – it could even be worse than Boko Haram.”
