Children’s Parliament wants Child Rights Act domesticated in Bauchi

Speaker, Bauchi State Children’s Parliament, Rukayya Dayyibu, has urged the State House of Assembly to domesticate the Child Rights Act in the state for the safety and security of children.

Dayyibu, who made the call in Bauchi on Tuesday at the New Year children’s party, said this would aid the education of the girl-child.

“Children are being abused at homes, schools and public places, thereby making us at risk, while our lives are ruined at puberty stage.

“Creating an enabling and safe environment, in line with the provision of the child rights act and other national laws and policies, is paramount.

“Safe environment will provide the framework for collective efforts for a real change in the lives of children and young people affected by gender-based violence,” she said.

The wife of the governor, Aisha Mohammed, advised the children to be obedient and be guided by positive morals as future leaders.

The Commissioner for Women Affairs and Child Development, Hajara Gidado, said the programme was aimed at making the children have a sense of belonging. (NAN)
