Everyone should work to make a happy, healthy and progressive environment for every girl child. He further added that killing a girl child before or after birth is considered murder and is a punishable offence and should be avoided at all costs. I thank CTI, who initiate efforts every year to welcome these newborn baby girls. It is a great initiative to celebrate these newborn baby girls in this world.”
