Sokoto State Governor Aminu Tambuwal has assented to the Child Protection Bill, earlier passed by the state House of Assembly.

The law was signed on Monday, in a ceremony attended by the UN Resident Humanitarian Coordinator in Nigeria, Edward Kallon, as well as other development partners and members of the Children Parliament in Sokoto State.

According to the governor, since the enactment of the Child Rights Act in 2003, domesticating the law in the state has been very difficult due to cultural and lifestyle differences.
