Thank you for visiting the Website of the Federal Government Girls College, Ikot Obio Itong, Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria [FGGC 101].
The Focus on the education of the girl child amongst nations, society and the family is of strategic importance and of great value to nation building and society. The girl child evolves into a mother. The mother is the care giver, the gate way to life for her off springs. She is saddled with the responsibility for the necessary early upbringing of her infant, caring for the home front, and she also doubles as a bread winner where the Man is no longer disposed to providing for the Family.
The impact on national development and advantage of educating the girl child can be summarized in this saying “When you educate a man, you educate an individual and when you educate a woman, you educate an entire family.” This declaration is multi faceted—an educated woman has the self confidence, skills as well as intelligence to understand the need to be a better daughter, sister, wife and mother and make a progressive family. Education is the only tool with which a girl or a woman can empower herself and eventually her family”. - Prerna Priya [Girl Child Education –The key to development]
