Nobel Prize winner Malala Yousafzai met with Acting President Yemi Osinbajo on Monday at the Presidential Villa.
The visit to the acting president is part of activities to mark Malala’s visit to Nigeria, the second in three years.
Malala Yousafzai is from Pakistan. Five years ago, she was shot in the head by the Taliban because she spoke up for the right of girls to go to school.
She survived and continued to campaign for girls education, becoming the youngest Nobel Peace Prize winner ever.
Leading a delegation of seven, the women and children activist reiterated her goal to an end to the deprivation of education among the girl child.
The meeting attended by Malala’s father and other girl rights activists commenced at about 6:00 PM and is being held behind closed doors.
