The Special Adviser to Cross River state governor on Education, Castro Ezama, has said about 50 to 60 percent of the girls in secondary schools in the state are not virgins.
He said this during a programme on FAD FM Radio in Calabar while speaking on the government’s effort to improve the standard of education in the state.
He said there was a high level of promiscuity and permissiveness amongst students in the state.
“50 or 60% of girls in our secondary schools are not virgins. And this is not good for the image of the state and of education,” Ezama stated.
However, a councillor representing Ward 7 in Bakassi Local Government Area, Grace Bassey, said such a statement was demeaning of the girl child.
She ruled the statement which highlighted sexual issues about girls while excluding the boy child, stressing that it was “totally unacceptable” and should be condemned.
