Malala Yousafzai Visits Osinbajo
Acting President Yemi Osinbajo on Monday received the founder of the Malala Fund and girls’ education activist, Malala Yousafzai at the Presidential Villa.
The meeting attended by Malala’s father and other girl rights activists commenced at about 6:00 PM and is being held behind closed doors.
Leading a delegation of seven, Malala reiterated her goal to end the deprivation of education among the girl child.
The youngest-ever Nobel Prize laureate’s last visit to Nigeria was in 2014, shortly after Boko Haram terrorists abducted some schoolgirls in Chibok community of Borno State.
She joined several groups to condemn the act and pressured the Goodluck Jonathan administration to ensure the safe return of the girls.
The Nobel Prize laureate had announced a donation of $200,000 from her foundation to support education in Nigeria.
Malala survived an attack by the Taliban as a school girl in Pakistan
