    Congratulation to President Jonathan of Nigeria for your innovative idea
    to encourage the creative minds of Nigerian young women. I wish you could get all the continent’s Presidents to encourage the development of women ( socially and intellectually).
    Female slavery is still going on in some parts of the African Continent.
    The building of the continents is not and will not be the duty of some GOD sent group of people. It is the responsibility that rest squarely to all African ( Males & Females )black or white ( or any other skin tone in between).Do you love Africa? Contribute! Stop pointing fingers.

    Thank you MR.Honorable President, we must STOP the Blame Game, encourage our young people to be innovative and creative.
    You are building a lasting legacy.

    Sincerely.
