    The Country Director, Christian  Aid Nigeria,  Charles  Usie has urged  key  stakeholders  of the Collective Action for Adolescent  Girls  Initiative  (CAAGI) to ensure that the girl child is empowered through  redoubling of efforts.

    He expressed this in a welcome address he delivered  at an event  Christian  Aid and partners  under CAAGI, tagged, lesson learning event  on improving  choices for the adolescent  girls with  a theme, ‘The Plight  of the adolescent  girl  in Northern  Nigeria: the journey  so far’ held in Kaduna on Thursday June  28, 2018,

    “I want  to  implore that as we celebrate  the girl child  today,  we ensure  that they are able to get empowerment that they would use to sustain  themselves.

    “I encourage  us that whatever  happens  on this platform  should  serve as motivation  to redouble  our goals  for the  girl child,” he said.

    Represented by Mr.  Temitope Fashola, he said that  the event  is called  lesson  learning  event  because  the CAAGI  will continue  with or without them.

    “Because we did  not do it alone,  but  worked  with various  partners.

    “We believe the  three  areas  we worked  on are interconnected and would be sustained.

    “We believe that Faith  Actors Dialogue Forum have a huge  platform  to pass across  messages we are  trying  to  pass,” he added.

    In attendance  were  traditional rulers, religious  leaders  from the Christian  Association  of Nigeria  (CAN)  and Jama’atul  Nasril Islam (JNI). Also  represented  were  media  executives.
