Kano State, Nigeria, has recently started an education policy which intends to end child marriage in the state. The policy which was implemented in September was to make primary and secondary school education compulsory and free for every child in the state.

Kano State’s Girl-Child Education Policy

Umar Ganduja, the governor of Kano state spoke at the 2019 Human Rights Summit/Award themed,“Adopting Rights Based Approach in the Public Sector Sustainable Development Agenda”.

According to him, the policy integrates the almajiri system with classroom education and also ensures that girls will now have to complete their education, by at least finishing secondary school, before they are allowed to get married. 

He said,

We provided free education for those nine children up to university level. Two more children have been recovered making 11.

The implication of this commission of inquiry is not only to recover the children, it’s not only for the punishment of those who were found guilty, but creating awareness for parents to take care of their children so that enabling environment is not provided for kidnappers.
