Child Wants Parents Protect Rights Of Children

By Wellington G Patrick, LINA Nimba County Correspondent

SANNIQUELLIE, June 18 (LINA) – A 12 year- old student of the St. Mary’s Catholic School in Sanniquellie, Nimba County, Dady Suah, has called on parents and guardians to act in the best interest of children, especially in making decisions that affect them.

Speaking to over 2,000 children in the Tubman Hall in Sanniquellie recently during the celebration of the Day of the African Child where she served as guest speaker, Suah observed that some African parents have abused the rights of children, especially girls, by making them bread winners of their homes.

Suah, who spoke on a topic “Early Marriage”, noted that the decision by some parents to lead their children into early marriage has brought setback to African kids, making them teenage parents and undermining their educational pursuit.

She pleaded with parents to do everything to protect the best interest of their children by ensuring that they get quality education and other basic needs.

The Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection recently urged schools and other institutions, joined by children, to celebrate the Day of the African Child on June 16.
