After rising to fame a few weeks ago by her noble act of rejecting a car gift from a married man, beauty therapist, Favour Philip, has expressed her pain with the rate of killings across the country.
In a one-on-one with Potpourri, she lamented the rate at which Nigerian youths engage in criminal activities to survive. Baring her displeasure on the disheartening situation, she advised Nigerians to take their destinies in their hands by getting their Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs) to enable them vote their desired political office holders at all levels in next year’s general elections.
The Imo State born beauty told Potpourri she is steaming up for a campaign against violence before, during and after the 2019 general elections. Favour who is currently using her present status to educate the youths on the need to acquire the required skills necessary to enable them engage in meaningful enterprises, believes it is a means of empowering them to be useless instruments in the hands of greedy and power-thirsty politicians.
However, she called on the government at all levels to provide an enabling environment for talented youths to discover and use their talents to empower themselves. She also talked about her desire to see the girl child across the country acquire quality education.
She said, “I am educated, that’s why I can sit and talk with you today. We all must join hands to promote girl-child education across the country so as to create more opportunities for women to become great leaders of tomorrow.”
Asked what her next line of action is, she said: “I would be embarking on street campaigns shortly in my home state, Imo, to sensitize the people on the need to shun violence and get the Permanent Voters Card (PVC) which is their power to elect their choice c candidates in the next general elections.” She called on well meaning individuals in the state to support this initiative as the peace of the state means peace for all.
