It added, “Uneducated girls are prone to child marriage which could lead to Vagina Vistula and many other negative things; we are thanking Ighalo and Oboabona for supporting eight talented girls who could not afford to go back to school.

“The #1girl1pen campaign was set up to raise awareness for the girl-child education and support girls by ensuring they stay in school and guide them throughout school.”

Ighalo paid for five girls while  Oboabona offered to pay the tuition for three girls.
