MISS NIGERIA INTERNATIONAL LAUNCHES CAMPAIGN AGAINST TEENAGE PREGNANCY


The recently crowned Miss Nigeria International, Africa, Ayo Anjorin, has launched a campaign against teenage pregnancy as a way of giving back to the society.

The launch took place at Ola Quranic Private School in Lagos Island and it focused on teenage pregnancy and the risk of getting pregnant at a tender age.

Speaking at the event, Doctor Afolabi Ajelabi from Lagos Island Maternity Hospital spoke about oral sex without using vulgar language. He also lectured the students on how to avoid being victims of teenage pregnancy.

“Although it is a good thing to be pregnant but to be pregnant at the right time and for the right person is very important,” Ajelabi said.

The Doctor also commended Anjorin for coming up with the initiative, stating that it will enlighten teenagers about how to avoid being victims of teenage pregnancy.

Ayo stated that the program is her way of giving back to the society. “Actually this is my own way of
giving back to the society as I have said beforehand and I think this is what is happening in my community. It is very rampant here and I think I need to educate and impact some knowledge into them about it. So this is my way of helping their family and the children involved."
