During the Big Brother Naija 2017 Grand Finale live show, Bisola won a fully paid for trip to New York city.
Ebuka was joined by Desmond Elliot of the ONE Campaign and Ms Sara Makka, the ONE Campaign Nigeria Country Director.
They discussed the shocking statistics of how few girls are going to school in Africa. Bisola was singled out as the winner of the ONE Campaign, This is what they said as they discussed the shocking statistics of what they were battling against.
Desmond: greeted Nigeria and said that it was an honour representing saying “Hello Naija how you doing? It is a great pleasure to be here at the Big Brother Naija Finale, representing the ONE campaign.”
Serah said, “Hi Naija, not only is it a pleasure being present here tonight at the finale but it was also a great pleasure that ONE worked hand in hand with Big Brother Naija to bring awareness on the shocking status of Girls Education in Nigeria, Africa and globally.”
Desmond carried on with “Yes, through ONE’s partnership with BBN we heard the housemates advocate for Girls Education. Through their presentations we learnt that 130 Millions Girls are out of school globally.”
Serah continued saying “We also learnt that in Nigeria, girls’ participation rate in education remains below that of boys across all levels of education, particularly at senior secondary level. In primary school, 31% of Nigerian girls are out of school compared to 27% of boys.”
Desmond carried on, “So without further ado, please see your screens of the winner of the Back to School Task, who will be joining ONE to add their voice to the Campaign, which advocates to have more Girls in Schools. They will join ONE at the UN General Assemble in New York later this year.”
Serah announced “And the winner is Bisoia” who looked overwhelmed walks on stage and was handed the winners board with ONE logo.
Serah explained, “The winner of this particular task will stand alongside other ‘ONE’ ambassadors, such as Omotola, Desmond Elliot, Waje, Ali Nuhu, D’banj, Yemi Alade, Banky W and many others, to attend policy meeting with Nigerian policy makers and also a trip to attend the UN General Assembly event in New York in September, where policies to empower and educate the girl child will be discussed.
The winner will have the opportunity to report back their findings from their trip to the Nigerian public.
