.

YEKINNI ADEYEMI

 

National Youth Council of Nigeria Ojokoro Chapter under the leadership of Comrade. Olaniyi Ilori on Thursday 9th Novermber organized an inter-school debate competition for secondary schools in Ojokoro community in a bid to evaluate the Child Protection Right Act and encourage comprehensive study among students in the community which took place at Ojokoro Local Council Secretariat in Ijaiye.

 

The event witnessed  education loving dignitaries who love and people who cared so much about the right of the Nigerian Child and among them were Comrade Olaniyi Ilori, President National Youth Council Ojokoro  Chapter, Chief Adeolu Ogunbanjo, Second Deputy President, National Parent Teachers Association of Nigeria (NAPTAN), All Progressive Congress party executive Mr. Korede Sanaya who doubled as the Chief Moderator, staffs of Ojokoro LCDA, teachers and students of St. Anthony International School, Ijaiye Ojokoro Senior College, Royal College, Home Science Association Secondary School, Ijaiye Housing Estate Secondary School, Parental Touch Schools and Ijaiye Ojokoro Senior High School and Royal College.

 

Comrade Ilori made it know that the debate is just one among several programmes lined up for youths in the community but the most unfortunate thing is that sponsors are not forth coming towards youth developmental programmes

 

“You can see the way the hall is and the incentives made available to participants and guest and that is because everything we do is from personal pocket. I am calling on the government and the public to pan towards useful programmes and not just promoting nudity and others in the name of civilization’’, Ilori said.

 

Chief Adeolu speaking with GOVTOROS  after the event on the child right act said, the children have shown that they really gone to school to learn and their points were well articulated,  even the organizers has done the needful by inviting both private and public schools to participate in this completion.

 

He further spoke on the act, “the act is okay as it checks the excesses of adults who are exuberant in the areas of discipline and children. However, the act is not comprehensive because it is silent on a minor abusing another minor which gives room for amendment. Disciple, morality and right on the part of the parent are all important but we should never replace child right act for morals”, Chief Adeolu said.

Mr. Korede Sanya however advised parents and guardians to intensify effort on the male child considering the participants at the debates where female outnumbered the male and surprisingly, the winner of the competition is also a female student.

 

“Parent has a lot to do particularly ensuring that these children goes to school prepared and provision of their educational and basic needs, we should not just leave them to wander about because education is free in Lagos”, Korede concluded.

 

Uwuala Benita  one of the participant is also of the opining that the act should be amended,  “looking at what is happening in the society today, children are deviating from the right ways of life all in the name of claiming their right. The government should understand that this is Africa and African culture must be upheld as it brings about morality. It should be considered in the child right act and it should be amended to suit African”, she said.

 

Wabara Sarah said, “I do not support the child protection act because it has taken discipline and punishment for abuse which will have it adverse effect of us as children. Even when we go wrong, we will not be punished because it has not spelt out the level of punishments that becomes abuse”.
