“Access to menstrual hygiene products is a basic human right and not a privilege.”
Her Excellency Wife of Kebbi State Governor Dr Zainab Atiku Bagudu is calling on female students across the state to take their academic engagement more seriously in order to record meaningful success.
She was reacting to the outcome of entrance examination result released by the Kebbi State School of nursing and midwifery in which out of one hundred and five students that benefitted from her free forms, only thirty one passed while thirteen failed to turn up for the exams.
She frowned at the attitude of the students who despite receiving the forms refused to take the exams, describing it as total waste of resources and opportunities and regrettable.
Dr Bagudu appeals to parents to complement the efforts of the state government by guiding their children and encouraging them to attend schools regularly .
Her Excellency also added that currently another set of one hundred admission forms for remedial studies at the federal university BK are being distributed free to female students across the state, calling on all qualified female students to come forward for the forms as they are limited.
