Bisola Aiyeola Proves She Is Not The Average Celebrity With Invitation From UN General Assembly
Nigerian actress and Big Brother Nigeria contestant, Bisola Aiyeola, will be attending the 72nd session of the UN General Assembly in New York as a ONE ambassador.
Bisola won ONE’s Back to School presentation task, where she called on Nigerian lawmakers to prioritize girls’ education during the Big Brother Naija show.
ONE’s #GirlsCount campaign focuses on the importance of girls’ education, recognizing that globally, 130 million girls are out of school, with 51 million of them in Africa, and, at least, 10.5 million of them in Nigeria alone.
The Campaign aims to increase the access to and quality of education for girls in Nigeria, with an emphasis on girls in Northern Nigeria.
Serah Makka who is ONE’s Nigeria Director was very pleased with Bisola coming out tops in the task. She said:
”We are proud to have Bisola!
Her presentation was very moving as she highlighted the status of girls education. ONE looks forward to working with her as we take our Campaign to the United Nations General Assembly in New York this week.
During the UN General Assembly we will ask Nigerian and other African leaders to make education work for every girl by 2030, in line with Sustainable Development Goal 4”.
Other ambassadors for the ONE #GirlsCount campaign include Omotola Jalade Ekeinde, Bonang Matheba, and Waje, and fans are urged to join them in making their voices heard in support educating the girl child, by joining the #GirlsCount campaign.
