‘Include sex education in curriculum’

Governments at all levels have been advised to include sex education in school curriculum to address the increasing cases of sexual abuse in the country.

This was in the communiqué issued on Friday at the end of a two-day webinar hosted by the Child Aid and Sponsorship Awareness Foundation.

The webinar, titled, “Sexual health education: Steering effective communications between guardians and their children,” was hosted by Mrs Toun Sonaiya.

Guest speakers at the webinar included Mrs Bola Tinubu of Founder Trustee Cece Yara Foundation; a sexual reproductive health analyst, Elizabeth Williams; and Anthonia Ojenabon.

The communiqué was signed by the Coordinator, Child Aid and Sponsorship Awareness Foundation, Temitope Obitunwase, and seven others.

It read partly, “The government is saddled with the responsibility of ensuring that proper systems are in place for infusing sexual health education into school curriculum across all school tiers.

“The government is also urged to activate and enforce security measures that allow effective prosecution of sex offenders.”

The NGOs were advised to work collaboratively in ensuring that advocacy, enlightenment and awareness efforts were intensified.

The wives of governors of Kebbi State, Dr Zainab Bagudu; Lagos State, Dr Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu; and Niger State, Dr Amina Bello, were said to have participated in the webinar.
