The National Council of Catholic
Women Organisation of Nigeria
on Thursday warned against the
alarming drop of male-child in
education.
With the drop, the group noted
that in the next 10 years, there
would be a scarcity of quality
husbands in the country. The
organisation National President,
Chief Felicia Onyeabo, stated this
on Thursday at a briefing to herald
the inauguration of Cor Mariae
College, Abuja. The inauguration
holds on Friday (today).
She said, “The future of this
country is going to be very bleak
for the male-child. How many girls
do you see hawking clothes? Go
to Onitsha, they are all men. We
have looked round and have come
to see that there is a neglect of
boys in education. Who are the
armed robbers on the streets?
They are mostly the boys. Let us
concentrate on training boys. The
NCCWO feels that a vacuum is
being created, and very soon, we
shall be faced with a situation
where our educated girl-child will
not find a corresponding suitable
boy-child to marry. This is because
more boys drop out of school,
apparently because the high rate of
unemployed youth discourages
our young boys from appreciating
the need to be educated.”
“The NCCWO also considered the
fact that in the near future, quality
husbands will become extremely
scarce, with too many highly
educated women looking for
husbands, and settling for anyhow
husbands, just to get married. The
result of this type of situation is
better imagined and will not augur
well for Nigerians.” She added.
