The Plan International has called for the full participation of more girls and women in the decision-making process in the country.

Gunvor Kronman, Board Chair, Plan International, made the call at the Launch of the State of World Girls Report on Wednesday in Abuja.

She said the world needs more female political leaders to make decisions that would translate to the education, health and general progress of the girl child.

“This report is about women and girls’ participation in political decision making and the message is very clear; we need more female decision makers in the world at all levels,” she said.

Charles Usie, Country Director of Plan International, Nigeria, said the report had been able to identify critical elements of a girl’s life and also check the issues affecting the girl child.

“The report shows that one in 10 girls think that females are not qualified to be political leaders and one in five have personally been discouraged from engaging with or participating in politics,” he said.

Participants called for equal participation of females to project their demands on a larger scale for the betterment of the girl-child and womanhood generally.
