Implement Child’s Right Act, FG urges stakeholders


Critical stakeholders in the implementation of the Child’s Right Act have been called upon to be part of the process of bringing the rights of the Nigerian children to fruition.

The Federal Government made the call Monday, during a retreat organized for members of the National Child’s Rights Implementation Committee (NCRIC) held in Kaduna.

Mrs Ifeoma Anagbogu, Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development, who made the call, said the retreat would give members “in depth understanding of your roles and responsibilities as members of the NCRIC, so that you will deliver effectively towards the implementation of the rights of the child in Nigeria.”

The Perm Sec who was represented by the Director, Child Development in the Ministry, Mrs. Jummai Mohammed, said the retreat would provide “a stepping stone for the development of reports toward our international commitments, such as the 5th and 6th Country periodic report, which has been due for submission a long time ago.”

Mohammed, who also spoke recalled that the NCRIC was established in 1994 in compliance with the obligations of the UN Convention and the AU Charter of the Rights and Welfare of the Child.

Mohammed, represented by an Assistant Director in the ministry, Mr. Okpewuru Egbe, recalled the mandate of the NCRIC saying it includes popularising the provisions of the Child’s Rights Act, 2003 and reviewing the state of implementation of the rights of the child in Nigeria,’’ among others.

She also commended the Rule of Law and Anti-Corruption (ROLAC) of the British Council for sponsoring the retreat.

Co-Chairman of NCRIC, Dr. MacJohn Nwaobiala, who also spoke, spelt out the roles of members of the NCRIC, saying that it is mandatory for members of NCRI, to be advocates in all issues that would boost the rights of the Nigerian child.

The Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Woman Affairs and Social Development is chairman of the committee, while members were drawn from relevant ministries, agencies and partners.
