PHOTOS: UN reiterates commitment to supporting girls' rights in Nigeria – TheCable

Comfort Lamptey, UN Women country representative in Nigeria, says the UN will continually support the rights of girls in the country.
She said this during a two-day girls’ voices summit organised by YouthHubAfrica with support from Ford Foundation.
The summit brought together 42 young girls from across the six geopolitical zones in Nigeria to interact and discuss the norms that limit them as girls.
Lamptey said the UN will not relent on investing in intergenerational dialogue between young girls and leadership institutions for a better society.
She encouraged the girls to use the summit as a platform to learn, network and get mentorship so as to better amplify their voices and speak up for the rights of other young girls.
Maria Machicado, UNICEF representative, also commended the children for being aware of their rights and demanding for it early.
The girls were made to engage in essay competitions where some of them emerged winners.
