Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s effort to return two out-of-school girls to the classroom has been ridiculed by social media users.
The Governor, on his way to formally launch a Social Welfare Integrated Programme (SWIP) Initiative, had seen 9-year-old Amarachi Chinedu and 12-year-old Suwebat Husseini, 12, running errands during school hours around Anthony Village in Lagos State.
Sanwo-Olu got to know that the underaged children had skip school because of domestic responsibilities they had to offer.

Narrating his experience at the launch, Sanwo-Olu said, “It is needless to ask what brought their parents to Lagos. We must ensure they are not robbed of their future.
“There are several Amarachis and Suwebats out there, who will not have this kind of opportunity. These girls didn’t ask to be in the circumstance they found themselves, but it is our responsibility to be able to give them the future they deserve; the opportunity that will make them better children to their family and better citizens of this country.”
