OLUWO OF IWO AND ARIYIKE AKINBOBOLA SAY NO TO FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATION IN NIGERIA

Female Genital Mutilation is the practice of partially or totally removing the external genitalia of girls and young women for non1medical reasons. Sadly, this practice still occurs in Nigeria. In 2017, I teamed up with the End cutting girls team to create awareness about FGM/C in Nigeria and we are on a mission to get communities to abandon this practice.



After I found out that my state of Origin -Osun state was the most FGM/C prevalent state, I decided to pay the King of my town a visit to discuss with him about how to end FGM/C in Iwo Land and I was delighted at the way our King took interest in the matter. He was not happy to hear that FGM/C was still being practiced.



His Imperial Majesty Telu 1, The Oluwo of Iwo Land, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi has been very supportive in helping to end Female Genital Mutilation in his land.



Today being the International Day of Zero Tolerance for Female Genital Mutilation is a day that I celebrate His Imperial Majesty, The Oluwo of Iwo Land, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi Telu 1, the End Cutting girls team and everyone working towards ending Female Genital Mutilation in their communities. Let's end this era where our girls are cut and wounded. Let's protect the girl child. Let's all come together to say NO to FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATION. Together, we can end Female Genital Mutilation in Nigeria.

SHADE LADIPO GIVES US SOME MAJOR MONDAY MOTIVATION




Nigerian Media Personality,  Shade Ladipo also known as the Young Billionaire took to her twitter and instagram to celebrate her admission into the University of San Diego fully sponsored by the US state department. 

She shared an inspirational story and also used the medium to motivate others to continue to work hard and not give up because it will pay off at the end. 

She wrote:
  " I remember wanting to go school in the US so bad over 15yrs ago, My SAT & TOEFL scores were lit, I got a cross-cultural scholarship, everything was set, but my parents couldn't afford the tuition and I had to settle for University of Lagos. Fast forward and I am thankful because I doubt I would be the person of character I am today if I had ended up in the University of Minnesota like I wanted. I was hurt & felt betrayed by God at that time but I thank God it didn't work that way. Now I am studying at the University of San Diego fully sponsored by the US State Department & I'm not even paying for food. Sometimes you have to let Go and let God...Work hard but don't be fooled & think your hard work will be the end of all. The hard work will prepare you for the great things ahead but Gods plan is totally different from yours.  I'm grateful & entirely blessed.
