Abuja – Nigerian Vice-President’s wife Dolapo Osinbajo, has on Sunday lamented the various abuses women and girls are being subjected to in the country, saying that, girls who are supposed to be mothers of tomorrow were no longer safe but under threat.
Mrs. Osinbajo, stated this at a service to commemorate the 2016 Mother’s Day at the Aso Villa Chapel in Abuja.
According to her, many girls in the country are passing through difficult times as they are being sexually abused, abducted and killed.
The Vice-President’s wife said Nigerians must joined hands to help the girl-child.
She said, “What do you teach them because they cannot give what they don’t have? The mothers of tomorrow cannot be mothers if they don’t have what it takes.
“I thank God for what mothers do; they take care of the child, train the child, etc. I thank God for the joy mothers bring. I pray for more grace, more wisdom and more strength for all mothers.”
In her sermon, the wife of the Senior Pastor of Dunamis International Church, Pastor Becky Enenche, said a mother was one of the greatest gifts to humanity.
She urged mothers to ensure that they guide their children and pray for them always.
