Lagos insists on safety of children

18 June 2014, 07:45

Abuja - Lagos has appealed to stakeholders involved in the development of children to assure them of their safety despite the security challenges the country is facing.

The Lagos State Deputy Governor, Princess Adejoke Orelope-Adefulire, made the appeal while addressing a press conference commemorating the Year 2014 Day of the African Child in her Alausa office.

Adefulire noted that children in the state were currently living under trauma occasioned by recent happenings in some parts of the country, which has increased the vulnerability of children in crisis-prone areas to all forms of danger.

She noted government and stakeholders must make that efforts to re-assure the children of their safety and well-being at all times, either at school or at home so as to restore their confidence.

The deputy governor regretted that the abduction of over 200 girls from their school in Chibok, Borno State saying it had created fear for the children countrywide.

She appealed to the government of the federation to ensure that the abducted girls are released safely from captivity.
