Deputy Speaker, Benue State House of Assembly (BNHA), Hon Mrs Lami Danladi has stated her readiness to initiate a bill that would take the out-of-school girl-child off the streets and return them back to the classroom.
The lawmaker, representing, Ado State Constituency made her intention known while speaking with newsmen in Makurdi last weekend, while reacting to her victory at the tribunal.
Mrs Danladi who spoke on her victory at the tribunal, described the victory as a victory for the people of her constituency, Ado State constituency.
She also explained that other persons that would benefit from the bill will be children of fallen heroes who has sacrificed their lives for the sake of Nigeria.
She bemoaned the manner in which the Nigerian society neglects the immediate family members of its fallen heroes and submitted that they too have a life to live and as such their families should be beneficiaries of policies and programme that would uplift the standard of their livelihood.
Mrs Danladi pledged that the bill if passed into law would also cater for other less privileged in the society as well as children and wives of the fallen heroes.
According to the lawmaker, “I am trying to see how I will initiate a bill in the house that will focus on less privilege children, particularly, the female ones who have to abandon their education through no fault of theirs.
“Another segment of people the bill will be focusing on are children and wives of our fallen heroes; I mean children of our gallant soldiers who have to pay the price to keep others safe, the same for those in the police and vigilante groups.
“Most of these heroes lost their lives in active service to protect the lives of others, yet, their children are not being taken care of, we have to do something to make their children have hope,” Mrs Danladi submitted.
The Deputy Speaker also lauded the state governor, Rev Fr Hyacinth Alia for restoring peace in the troubled Agila and Ezza communities of Benue and Ebonyi states respectively.
