The Girl Child Education Unit Coordinator of Techiman Municipal in the Bono East region, Madam Ellen White has urged parents to desist from giving out their girl children to men for early marriage or exchange for something.
She said it is always disheartening to see children who are under age being given to old men to marry in exchange for money.
She said at times the parents are the primary cause of this early marriages and premarital sex among the youth, because most of these children are not well catered for in terms of their clothing, food and shelter.
Speaking to the media on early marriage and premarital sex, Madam Ellen White urged the youth especially the girls to take their education seriously and desist from having sex with their age mates because the handsome men are yet to come into their lives after achieving success in education life.
“Most of these guys will have sex with you but they will never marry you but rather destroy your life for you”.
Madam Ellen finally urged Adolescent girls and their parents to collaborate well to make their lives useful and prosperous.
