The Minister of Women Affairs, Uju Kennedy-Ohanenye, is advocating that children work in factories, industries and other manufacturing enterprises every day to support the country’s production of essential products, allowing for skills acquisition to complement their academics in the classroom.
The minister explained that engaging schoolchildren in such labour would reduce substance abuse and addiction.
“They would be more occupied with school and equally do some production which would help them in earning money. This would equally curtail the issue of insecurity in our society. If we were hoping for the government to do it all, it would never happen,” Ms Kennedy-Ohanenye stressed.
