UNICEF Charges 10 Remaining States To Domesticate The Child Rights Law To Do So

The United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund, (UNICEF) has charged the remaining 10 out of the 36 states including the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja which are yet to domesticate the Child Rights Law to do so.

This will protect children to a great extent as the world works towards meeting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) target.

Speaking during a four-day Training of Youth Volunteers on Real-Time Monitoring for the Child-Friendly Communities Initiative, held at the Amphitheater of the Teachers Continuous Training Institute in Biase, Cross River State, the UNICEF representative, Boco Abdul stated that effort should be made to build more educational facilities for children to enable them to have easy access to education and that is of great interest to the United Nations and United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF).”

She further said that the populace has the right to hold the government accountable if children do not enjoy a child-friendly environment. “If the government is not doing what it should do the populace should hold the government accountable. We are determined to create child-friendly communities.” She added.

Mrs Abdul also charged the CFCI volunteers to be dedicated to their duties and ensure that they take the message of child rights, child protection, sustainable health and others as specified in the SDGs to their communities.
