According to her, “Any nation that is not investing on the girl-child is not contributing to building a culture of peace”, and charged the youths to embrace peace and maintain it in their communities, local governments and the state, and Nigeria at large.

Ene Obi said government should develop programme for the girl-child, adding that the issue of violence is on the increase and those affected the most are women.

She asked, “Who do u hope to marriage, if you do not protect a girl child? You should design a programme for women.” The country director called on hospitals and other organization to pay more attention to the girl-child and pleaded with the government to dialogue for peace.
