It is a well-known fact that any society that respects equity and social justice will in the same vein create enabling environment for greater respect to the fundamental human rights of children.

The past few months could rightly be described as some of the toughest in the lives and times of the Nigerian citizenry, especially the younger population who are at the receiving end of absolute poverty, terrorism and other manifestations of violence and crimes that have enveloped the nation, not forgetting the current Covid-19 pandemic.

Spurred by passion and concern for the vulnerable children in the society, Queen Janet Akor; the current holder of Queen of the Federal Republic of Nigeria used the occasion of the commemoration of Democracy Day in Nigeria to call on government and the political class to  ensure a stable future for the Nigerian child by creating an atmosphere of socio-economic stability necessary for them to have an assured tomorrow.

Queen Janet, who spoke to newsmen on the sidelines of a charity visit to two orphanage homes in Makurdi, Benue State on Friday noted that children are the leaders of tomorrow and that it takes a heart of love and gratitude to honor one another, especially the vulnerable ones. “Honoring these vulnerable children is the greatest gift I could ever wished for on such memorable day in the life of our country as a democratic nation”, she stressed.

With so much drive about the future of our country, queen Janet expressed: “Until we do the right things for ourselves as a nation and world at large, the possibilities and growth  for tomorrow could be aborted if the necessary measures are not put in place to secure our today for a better tomorrow”.

Beyond the vulnerable, Miss Janet also observed that on a general perspective, grave violations of child’s rights continue to occur in our society with terrifying regularity. According to her: “Children in Nigeria and Africa at large face systematic abuse, discrimination and are regularly denied the right to life and security of person, full legal capacity, health care, education, inheritance, and freedom of movement.

“Children still do not have full access to economic and political decision-making processes in their families, nations, or international institutions. Too often, governments allow crimes against children to go unpunished, continuing a culture of impunity for family members, State agents, and others who discriminate or commit violence against children”, Queen Janet explained.

Continuing, the Benue born beauty queen and catalogue model decried the situation of the Nigerian child where they are being raped, kidnapped, either for ransom or trafficked for economic reasons. This, she blamed on the lack of adequate security in the Country. she therefore pleaded with parents and guardians to desist from the habit of sending their children to the street to hawk wares which, according to her, exposes the child to unnecessary danger.

As a pragmatic demonstration of her passion for the vulnerable children, Janet Akor and her team took out time to celebrate the democracy day and hand over gifts to the children in the El_Shaddia Home, as well as the Divine Charity Works Organization Children Home International, both in Makurdi, Benue state.
