Nigeria Launches Gender Balance Policy In Education.

The Federal  government has launched the National Policy on Gender in Education.

 

The newly launched document is now an all inclusive policy that makes specific provision for access to education by both boys and girls, beyond basic education level.

 

Speaking during the launch, the Permanent secretary of the Federal Ministry of Education, Sonny Echono stated that the revised National Policy on Gender in Education was a step in the right direction as it cuts across all levels of education, captures emerging issues and cross cutting issues.

 

He urged all sectors and states to ensure that the policy was used as a tool for achieving not only gender equality and equity but achievement of SDG 2030 Agenda.

 

The Chief of Education UNICEF Nigeria, Saadhna Panday, expressed the Fund’s delight in working with the Nigerian government and other partners in bringing the policy to reality.
