UNICEF applauds Nigerian governor's signing of Child Protection Bill

Sokoto State Governor Aminu Tambuwal

The UN’s children’s agency, UNICEF, has welcomed the signing into law of the Sokoto State Child Protection Bill, saying it was a “major step forward for children’s rights in Nigeria.”

Sokoto State Governor Aminu Tambuwal signed the bill into law on 22 November, 18 years after the Federal Government of Nigeria enacted the Child Rights Act 2003 and urged state governments to domesticate the Act into State law.
