20 million girls have been pushed out of school due to #COVID19, and if we don’t act, they might never return. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

RT @Connected_dev: It is very unfortunate that many rogue/errant police officers do not seem perturbed by the ongoing demands for #PoliceReformInNigeria
They have continued to display brazen disregard of citizens rights.
