Child Rights Act Will Open Vista To Devt Initiatives -Borno Women Affairs Commissioner

Blank NEWS Online (NIGERIA):

THE Commissioner for women affairs in Borno state, Haijiya Gambo Zuwaira has said that the Child’s Right Act bill will give the children of Borno state especially coming out of the 12 years of insurgency the right to education, good health, water, live and justice.

Zuwaira, who was part of the five days workshop organised by the Borno State House of Assembly at REIZ Continental Hotel, Abuja to look into the bill and domesticate it for the Borno child, also observed that even though there are many rights before now, which are from the religious and societal perspectives but such rights cannot be implemented without the backing of the law.

According to Zuwaira, “For us in Borno state it has been a wonderful experience and a very good opportunity for the children of Borno state. This Child Rights Acts is necessary and the time is now especially as we are returning back to full time peace in Borno state.

“You can see that our internally displaced persons are going back to their homes. There has been general peace. So, what next? A normal life and opportunity for the children to be part of the developmental initiative of the Zulum administration in the state. And so, putting these child’s right act into being domesticated is the best thing that has happened to Borno state throughout this year.

“You can see that the entire leadership of the Borno state House of Assembly is here. You could see that the dedication and the zeal to see that this act or bill is passed or is being domesticated is on everyone’s face.”

The Commissioner said this is the first time such an act is being domesticated, adding that without the backing of the law the act cannot be implemented.

“So, by passing this bill automatically every child of Borno will benefit from the developmental success that came with such a law”. She said.
