The Special Adviser to Governor Ben Ayade on Education, Castro Ezama, has said 50 to 60% of girls in secondary schools in Cross River State are not virgins.
Ezama who stated this during a programme on FAD FM Radio in Calabar while speaking on government’s effort to improve the standard of education in Cross River, said there was a high level of promiscuity and permissiveness amongst students in the state.
“50 or 60% of girls in our secondary schools are not virgins. And this is not good for the image of the state and of education”, he said.
Many people have condemned Ezama’s demeaning comments.
