The Centre for Black and African Arts and Civilization (CBAAC) has launched a fundamental rights campaign for young people, describing it as the first required step to secure an assured future for Africa and its cultural values and heritage.
Tagged: “The 2019 African Child Day”, the first day of the two-day event witnessed turnout of school children across Lagos State who participated in a unity rally.
At the second-day symposium, tagged, Child’s Rights: “Use of Mother’s Tongue in Communication and Teaching in Nigerian Schools”, the CBAAC Acting Director-General, Ndidi Francisca Aimienwauu said it has become expedient for Africans to do everything possible to protect the rights of every child especially as it relates to basic necessities like education, medicare, being allowed to speak their mother tongues, among others.
“If children are indeed the future of Africa, and upon their fragile shoulders rests the future of this continent, they therefore must be taught and sensitized in their indigenous mother’s tongues so as to come to terms with the challenges, wishes and aspirations of the social, economic and political environment of the continent”, She said.
The Special Guest of Honour and former Chairman, Amuwo Odofin Local Government, Comrade Ayodele Adewale said it is unfortunate that over 70 percent of children in Sub-Saharan Africa are in poverty and are studying in hostile environment, hence the need for all stakeholders to rescue the younger generation.
