Likewise, the bill’s sponsor and a Member of the House of Representatives, Akin Rotimi Jnr, mentioned that the bill would be expedited and passed by the representatives and the Senate without any public hearings.

He added that the bill was in line with Agenda 5 of the 9th Assembly’s Legislative Agenda under Social Sector Reforms.

The founder and Executive Director of the Gender Mobile Initiative, Omowumi Ogunrotimi, emphasized the need for stakeholders to focus on prevention rather than just response to the issue.

She said, “As far back as 2019, 2020, we had a national conference where we validated this policy with a critical mass of stakeholders in the room across the National Universities Commission (NUC), National Board for Technical Education (NBTE), and even the students’ community.”

Prince Louis has a ‘two-year wait’ before following in Princess Charlotte’s footsteps

Prince Louis was obviously absent from his siblings’ separate royal trips last week, and one expert revealed how long it will be until he can join them.

According to an expert, Prince Louis will have a “two-year wait” before he can follow in Princess Charlotte’s footsteps with exciting trips.

Princess Charlotte attended Wimbledon with the Princess of Wales last Sunday, and Prince George joined Prince William in Berlin for the Euros 2024 final that evening.

Cameron Walker, a royal specialist, discussed George and Charlotte’s trip last week with Svar Nanan-Sen on GB News’ The Royal Record Podcast.

Louis was absent from both trips, with the Prince and Princess of Wales’s youngest child most likely being cared for at home.

Regarding the six-year-old, Svar stated, “One royal child who was not at England’s Euro 2024 defeat or Wimbledon was Prince Louis.

Princess Charlotte went to Wimbledon last week with mum Princess Kate

“This has caused quite a stir online, with many calling for justice for Prince Louis. He’s still only six, we have to remember. READ FULL STORY HERE>>>CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE READING>>>

“Charlotte made her first appearance at Wimbledon when she was eight, so he’s got to wait a couple more years. But Kate did say last year when George and Charlotte went to Wimbledon without Louis, that he was very upset about it.”

Although fans were unable to see Louis at either event, the Prince and Princess of Wales used social media to tell what their baby son has been up to, sharing a cute photo of him and Charlotte.

Regarding the image of Charlotte and Louis wearing personalized football shirts, Mr Walker added: “We did get a lovely photograph taken by the Princess of Wales on the Sunday evening of when George and William were in Berlin for the Euros final, but what was lovely was seeing Prince Louis with his big sister, Princess Charlotte, and the Princess of Wales in their private grounds in Adelaide Cottage, we believe, and watching the England game.”

Kate and Charlotte were joined by her sister, Pippa Middleton, for last week’s Wimbledon Men’s Final.
