Osun Flays Child Labour, Seeks Better Welfare

folakeThe Osun State Commissioner for Women and Children Affairs, Mrs. Mofolake Adegboyega, says the state government will continue to put in place measures to eradicate child labour.
Adegboyega made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on Wednesday in Osogbo.
He said the International Labour Organisation was opposed to engaging children in labour instead of providing them social protection.
Adegboyega said, “A large number of Nigerian children are being engaged in forced, paid and unpaid domestic work which has made them vulnerable to abuse.
“The administration of Governor Rauf Aregbesola has kicked against child abuse and hard labour while numerous policies are being put in place in favour of children to better their tomorrow.
“Children should be safeguarded from abuse while we should improve the social protection and national social security system that are sensitive to their success and upbringing.”
The commissioner expressed support for the well being of children in the state and called on parents not to expose their children to vices.
She called for the continued support of government, organisations, civil society, schools, youths, women groups and media in the campaign against child labour.
