We want the Governor of Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki to Return The School to the Catholic Mission and we say NO to the attempt by Edo State Government to build a PUBLIC STADIUM in St Maria Goretti GIRLS' School's field, which the government wants to wall off. This Online petition is to further put pressure on the Governor, who is campaigning against Human Trafficking and Child Slavery. Governor Obaseki in a recent speech gave the statistics himself as the highest from Edo State. The problem is that the actions and inactions of Government are the main causes of these problems he is stating.  In St Maria Goretti the very high migration from SS2 yearly, where about 5,000+ get to SS2, only 106 remain in St Maria Goretti for their SS3, while most drop out and others go to miracle centers to sit for their WASC. This makes a lot of our girls become victims of Human Trafficking, Child Slavery and Prostitution. Many even drop out of school.  Education in Edo State, as it is now is ill equipped and Government lacks the capacity to manage our schools effectively. We need Education that Empowers, like the one those of us old students got and even better.
Successive governments have refused to return our School to the Mission. Governor Obaseki has said he will not return Schools to the Mission. Several others secondary schools in Benin city are already back in the hands of the Mission. This online petition is to make the Governor see it's in the best interest of the girl child in our Nigeria of today. The best interest of the child is paramount.  We stand strong and committed, united in bringing this to a successful outcome. We are sure Governor Obaseki was pleased when he saw the huge TV coverage of the Commissioning of the newly completed fence around the School along with the Commissioner for Education. The speech from our immediate past President Dame Victoria Ekhomu made a huge impact. Among our old girls we have women of extraordinary achievements worldwide. Captains Of Industry are among our Old Girls “Powerful Women” many of them in Edo state and many more In Nigeria.
We are immediately commencing this Online Petition.
We believe this is the time for action. Later will be to late!
