• The Kwara State Governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed, has urged schoolgirls to abstain from sedentary lifestyles that could expose them to cancerous diseases in future.

    The governor gave the advice at the inauguration of Life Empowers Anchors Hope (LEAH), a cancer school club, as part of activities to mark the 2015 International Day of the Girl-child held in Ilorin.

    The International Day of the Girl Child is being celebrated on Oct. 11, following UN General Assembly’s adoption of Resolution 66/170 on December 19, 2011, to recognise girls’ rights and the unique challenges girls face around the world.

    The governor, who was represented by the state’s Commissioner for Women Affairs, Hajiya Ayinke Saka, urged girls to be upright, obedient and respectful.

    He also urged them to report any act of sexual abuse or molestation to the appropriate school authorities.

    Ahmed warned girls against sexual activities at tender age, saying early exposure to sex could make them prone to cervical cancer later in life.

    He also urged parents to always show love and care to their children, especially the females. (NAN)
