Underage girls in Adamawa State have made a call at the state assembly on the occasion of this year’s International Day of the Girl Child for the enactment of child rights protection bill to curb the rampant incidence of child marriages in the region, Siggy reveals.

The representative of the underage girls, Amira Abdullahi, a 13-year-old JSS 3 student at the Government Day Junior Secondary School, Luggere, in Yola North LGA, have asked for legislations for the prohibition of early marriage in the state that will stop parents from giving them out for marriage until they complete secondary school.

Amira pleaded with the assembly to give the ‘Child Protection Bill’ a speedy passage since it has scaled through first reading at the hallowed chamber, adding that an enactment of ‘Early Marriage Prohibition Bill’ will help to stop parents in the state from giving their underage daughters out for early marriage.

She further appealed to the assembly to ensure that girls are protected from cases of rape and other forms of gender-based violence and child abuse.

The students at the occasion also commended the assembly for passing the Violence Against Persons (Prohibition) (VAPP), Law and other education-friendly laws that are capable of bettering education system and standards in the state.
