18.3 Million Nigerian Children Do Not Attend School – UNICEF

There are currently 18.3 million Nigerian children who are known to not have had access to the classroom’s four walls.

The statistics, which were released by UNICEF leadership on Saturday and made available to DAILY POST, also expressed regret that the large number of children attending school are not receiving a good education that can lead to good prospects for the future.

The organization, which made this known through Catherine Russell, it’s executive director, also identified the protection of every child’s rights, regardless of their background, as the surest way to create a more peaceful, prosperous, and just world for everyone.

The organization claimed that discrimination against children based on their ethnicity and religion is pervasive throughout the world in a statement that the Daily Post noticed had been released in honour of World Children’s Day.

They stated that the effect of such acts on children “highlights widespread disparities among minority and ethnic groups and demonstrates the extent to which racism and discrimination impact children’s education, health, access to a registered birth, and a fair and equal justice system.”

They went on to say that “systemic racism and discrimination” “put children at risk of deprivation and exclusion that can last a lifetime.”

They declared that “this hurts us all” and urged everyone to do everything in their power to defend the rights of all children.

“Discrimination and exclusion deepen intergenerational deprivation and poverty and result in poorer health, nutrition, and learning outcomes for children, a higher likelihood of incarceration, higher rates of pregnancy among adolescent girls, and lower employment rates and earnings in adulthood,” the statement claims.
