NAPSS seeks review of child rights protection law

The President National Association of Proprietors of Private Schools, Lagos chapter [NAPPS], Mr. Olawale Amusa has advocated the immediate enforcement of Child Rights Protection law.

Amusa noted that the enforcement of the law would guarantee the right of children to qualitative education.

He made the call at the maiden edition of the NAPPS’ online Science Competition 2021, tagged “grooming indigenous technologists through Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, (STEM).”

He noted that science and technology ”has a role to play in some of the issue bedeviling  the country today and adequate priorities must be given to research and development to thrive  and this will allow speedy development in the country.”

”We have decided that we are going reward any participant who can come up with an invention that can be produced in large quantity.”

The Country Director of Sterling Heights Children Foundation, Adeniyan Adekunle pointed out that one of the major impediments of science  and research in Nigeria was the lack of the political will by the government to fund research institutes and low patronage by the private sector to sponsor science and technology in schools.
