Governor Aminu Tambuwal

Sokoto state governor, Aminu Tambuwal has signed the Sokoto state Child Protection bill into law.

The bill was earlier passed by the state House of Assembly to enhance the conditions of children in the state.

He signed the law on Monday at an elaborate ceremony attended by the UN Resident Humanitarian Coordinator in Nigeria, Edward Kallon, UNICEF’s Chief Field Officer in Sokoto, Mr Maulid Warfar, Plan International representative, and other dignitaries.

The governor noted that since the enactment of the Child Rights Act 2003 by the Federal Government led by President Olusegun Obasanjo, states were enjoined to domesticate the law which, however, become difficult to due to cultural lifestyle differences.

According to him, the law was among the major landmark achievements of his administration and commended the efforts of the key actors, in ensuring that it suited and conformed with the cultural and religious concerns of the states.

Tambuwal stressed that the state government, under his watch, would continue to live up to the expectations of the people, especially the protection of the lives of growing children and women.
