The wife of Ekiti State Governor, Mrs Feyisetan Fayose, on Monday condemned the increasing cases of sexual abuse against the girl child in the society.
Governor's wife condemns rampant sexual abuse of the girl-child
Fayose said parents should be more vigilant in caring for their girl-child to protect them from being impregnated.
She said this while offsetting medical bill of 25 years old cerebral palsy patient impregnated by an unknown person and other indigent patients at the State Specialist Hospital, Ijero-Ekiti.
She frowned at the way a cerebral palsy lady was raped by an unknown man at Ijero and got her pregnant, leaving her and the baby without a father.
She stressed that for the future of the girl- child to be adequately secured, there was the need for her education to be taken seriously without any distraction.
Fayose also advised ladies to keep their body for their future husbands, adding that they should not allow any man to use and dump them anyhow.
"There is dignity in virginity’," she added.
Chief Medical Director of the Hospital, Dr Olagbaju Adebanjo, while appreciating the gesture extended to the patients by the wife of the governor, called for more government support and attention for the hospital.
Mrs Bosede Ige, one of the beneficiaries, commended the gesture of the governor’s wife, saying that she was unable to pay the bill given her by the hospital.
