Centre wants Child Rights Act domesticated in Kano

The Centre for Information Technology and Development (CITAD) has called on the Kano State House of Assembly to speed up processes of domesticating the Child Rights Act and Violence Against People Prohibition (VAPP) Act.

This, according to the centre, is necessary to end cases of Gender-Based Violence (GBV), just as it recorded 61 cases in one month in Kano.

Addressing newsmen in Kano yesterday, the CITAD’s Programme Officer, Zainab Adamu, called on all stakeholders to support the move, noting that GBV victims were both male and female.

She said, “These abuses have engendered the lives of many girls in the society and often times lead to physical and psychological harm, even death at times. GBV, therefore, remains an obstacle to girl education and children development in general.”
