FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO JAIL PARENTS WHO DON’T SEND THEIR CHILDREN TO SCHOOL.
Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, has said the Federal Government will soon a effect policy to prosecute parents who refused to enrol children of school age in schools across the country.
Adamu made this known in Abuja, yesterday, when he addressed newsmen, during the ninth edition of the weekend ministerial briefing.
He said parents who sabotage government’s efforts to reduce the number of out-of-school children would soon be criminalised and would be made to face the wrath of the law.
“Unless the issue of parents who refused their children going to school is made a crime, and we start jailing parents, the menace of out of school children would not be resolved.
“There are many who are still working behind culture, religion. So, the ministry is to effect this policy so that any parent whose child of school age refuses to take them to school would be jailed.”
