Tambuwal’s Wife to Sponsor Education of 700 Girls Annually
This she said will be done in collaboration with the Sokoto state ministries of education, women affairs and the state SDGs office.
Represented by Dr Asma’u Wali, Mrs. Tambuwal pledged to encourage parity between male and female genders in Sokoto state.
“Parity begins with education. Without an education it is far more difficult to have a fulfilling and fulfilled life. Without access to education there’s less opportunity to earn more and live behind a life of poverty,” she said.
According to her, “I want to see an end to gender gaps in my country as I know you all want to see a similar end to gender gaps here in the UK,” she said
She called on employers to support parity by paying men and women the same pay for the same work. She raised her concern on why sectors dominated by women are low paid.
Haj Mariya called on parents and guardians to encourage their children into becoming professionals.
She thanked the Principal of Milton Keynes College, Dr Mills for giving her the opportunity to speak at the event, and also urged everyone to support the Pledge for parity.
