The lawmaker spoke at a book launch in London, and pledged to invest in the girl-child in the most populous black nation in the world
It is not everyday that a foreign lawmaker takes on the challenge of helping Nigerian citizens when the Nigerian politicians are lax on the topic.
A UK lawmaker, Lord John David Taylor of Warwick and member, House of Lords in the United Kingdom Parliament, has shocked many, as he has pledged to invest in Nigerian girls.
Taylor described Nigerian Women as industrious, focused and goal-oriented, and promised to begin a project for the enhancement of the fortunes of the girl child in Nigeria.
He said this on Tuesday in London at the launch of the one-hundred-and-ninety-page book entitled; “Beyond Beauty” written by the award-winning author Dr Blessing Agbomhere.
The book captures the values of education, entrepreneurship, patriotism and community service.
It chronicles lives of notable Nigerian women such as Esther Agbomhere, Dora Akunyili, Stella Adadevoh, Ekaette Unoma Akpabio, and First Lady of Nigeria, Oluremi Tinubu.
It also includes details on young women in the country, portrays the story of a young woman who, through the tutelage of her mother and society, realises that beauty is more than what the eyes can see.
Lord Taylor promised to be part of the initiative to promote the book and its message in Nigeria.
