The Imo State Government has initiated a policy to put a lid on child Labour through hawking and loitering.
The policy was introduced to mitigate the effect of out of school children in the state.
The Uzodimma administration is determined to put an end to child Labour which will include taking into custody and prosecuting of parents and guardians of children engaged in a breach of child rights through child Labour of hawking and loitering.
According to Hope New Media, “The first lady of Imo state offered assistance through the commissioner for women affairs and vulnerable groups Lady Nkechinyere Ugwu to those who were removed the streets and to ensure that the children are in school and not the avenue for economic exploitation”
