Govenor Sang called on girl child to put education on the forefront and avoid early marriages .
"It is sad that some girls drop our of school to get married , I want to tell you today thta if you go to school you will get a better person who will marry you instead of marrying a bodaboda guy who will take you no where.

"My government will ensure that all girls who are unable to pay school fees go to school through giving them bursaries as a honour to the deceased and anyone who will deny the girl child a chance to go to school will face the full force of the law," he added.
