Former Big Brother Naija 2017 housemate Bisola Aiyeola, is set to attend the 72nd session of the UN General Assembly in New York as a ONE ambassador.

Recall that the star had at Big Brother Naija 2017, won ONE’s Back to School presentation task, where she called on Nigerian lawmakers to prioritize girls’ education.

The housemates were asked to put together a presentation based on the information and statistics about girls’ education in Nigeria from ONE’s Poverty is Sexist policy report. They highlighted the barriers to girls’ education in Nigeria and presented possible solutions to ensuring every girl in Nigeria completes primary and secondary school, and Bisola’s presentation was outstanding.

 

In her remarks on Bisola’s performance, ONE’s Nigeria Director Serah Makka said,

We are proud to have Bisola!

Her presentation was very moving as she highlighted the status of girls education. ONE looks forward to working with her as we take our Campaign to the United Nations General Assembly in  New York this week.

 

During the UN General Assembly we will ask Nigerian and other African leaders to make education work for every girl by 2030, in line with Sustainable Development Goal 4.

Other ambassadors for the ONE #GirlsCount campaign include Omotola Jalade EkeindeBonang Matheba, and Waje.

ONE’s #GirlsCount campaign focuses on the importance of girls’ education, recognizing that globally, 130 million girls are out of school, with 51 million of them in Africa, and, at least, 10.5 million of them in Nigeria alone.
