Child abuse

Women journalists in Nigeria on Sunday decried the increasing rate of suicide and child abuse in the country.

Adeola Ekine, chairperson of the Nigeria Association of Women Journalists in Lagos, Nigeria’s economic hub, made this known in a statement.

Ekine advised parents to be more watchful, approachable and give listening ears to their children to curb the menace.

She also advised parents to be cautious of using what they see on social media as standards for their children as no two children were the same, urging them not to compare children development.

The official called on newly elected state governors to run a gender-inclusive government by including more women in their cabinet. Enditem
