In view of the sharp increase in out-of-school children, maternal mortality rate, and child abuse in Kebbi State, NGOs have called for the speedy implementation of the CHILD RIGHTS ACT.
The statement reads:
“Today, 25th May, 2019 is selected to be the Almajiri Child Rights Day.
It’s a nation wide event going to take place in almost all northern states of the nation including FCT.
The program is a collaborative effort of various NGOs working on vulnerable children/almajiri in Kebbi State.
We wish to use the medium to advocate for the domestication of child rights act in Kebbi state. Join us to make it a reality.
*Note* that this event is organized by the State’s local NGOs.
