DJ Cuppy Visits IDPs In Borno State, Calls For Support For Children’s Education

DJ Cuppy

DJ Cuppy, real name, Florence Otedola, paid a visit to the internally displaced persons (IDPs) camp in Maiduguri, Borno state capital on Wednesday.

Her visit was on the aegis of Save the Children, a humanitarian agency.

Speaking to journalists, the daughter of Lagos Businessman, Femi Otedola, called for the “emergency support” in educating children displaced by Boko Haram insurgency in northeastern Nigeria.

The Vocalist expressed fear that the educational system in the region of the country was nothing to write home about. She, however, demanded the deployment of emergency measures.

“I was able to observe and learn about childhoods that come to an early end, significantly because of ill-health, malnutrition, exclusion from education, child marriage, early pregnancy, and violent death,” said Cuppy, a board member and an ambassador of the agency.

“Statistics according to the Humanitarian Needs Overview estimates that 2.2 million school-aged children and teachers in North-eastern Nigeria need immediate education in emergency support. My vision is to save every child I can.”

According to the humanitarian agency, 800 schools in Bornu State are not operational as a result of the security challenges bedeviling the state.

The agency said further that 2.2 million school-aged children and teachers need emergency educational support in the northeastern region of the country.
