Founder, Aku Resource and Advocacy Centre, Barrister Asenath Karau Udokama, has advised families to embrace community parenting in order to reduce the rate of child abuse and women violence in Nigeria.
Barrister Udokama gave the advice in Kaduna during a friendly football match between her advocacy centre and Hemophilia Foundation of Nigeria.
She also called on the government of the day to frown at human rights violation and impose tougher penalties on offenders.
Barrister Udokama, who said that the theme of the event was; “Unite to Reverse the Impact of Covid-19 on the Nigerian Child”, further urged Nigerians to report violators of human rights to appropriate authorities.
In her remarks, Founder/Executive Director, Hemophilia Foundation of Nigeria, Mrs. Megan Bukky Adediran, also urged the government to support those suffering from Hemophilia – which is a bleeding condition where the person lacks the ability to stop bleeding.
Mrs. Adediran said that Hemophilia is incurable but can be managed if the necessary precautions are taken.
