Wife of Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, Dolapo On Sunday lamented the various abuses women and girls are being subjected to in Nigeria.
Mrs. Osinbajo, who spoke at a service to mark this year’s Mother’s Day at the Aso Villa Chapel at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, regretted that girls who are supposed to be mothers of tomorrow were no longer safe in the country.
According to her, many girls in the country are passing through difficult times as they are being s3xually abused, abducted and killed.
The Vice-President’s wife said Nigerians must joined hands to help the girl-child.
“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.
She also called on the children to obey their parents and honour them always.
The Vice-President, the Chaplain of the Aso Villa Chapel and Pastor Seyi Malomo were among the personalities that attended the service.
