The Imo state government has begun the crackdown of child Labour across the streets of the state including rural areas.

The vulnerable groups are children who through hawking and loitering the streets of Imo state become prey to social vices.

The policy was initiated to lessen the danger posed by minors lingering the state.

“Children Hawking or Loitering anywhere in Imo State will henceforth be arrested, their Guardians and Parents will be prosecuted, says government”

The shared prosperity administration is geared towards taking a harder stance on child Labour which will include taking into custody and prosecution of parents and guardians of children engaged in breach of child rights through child Labour of hawking and loitering.

The First Lady of Imo state offered assistance through the commissioner for women affairs and vulnerable groups Lady Nkechinyere Ugwu to as a matter of urgency take a database of those who were removed from the streets and to ensure that the children are in school and not avenue for economic exploitation.

This moves by the State government through the ministry of women affairs is a commendable step to be supported by all Imolites.

Henceforth any child caught hawking or loitering the streets of Imo state will be arrested and guardian cum parents prosecuted accordingly.
