By Olasunkanmi Akoni

LAGOS — THE Lagos State Government, yesterday, appealed to parents and guardians to beware of some impostors in the habit of using school holiday period to perpetuate evil against school children.

The Commissioner for Youth and Social Development, Mr. Agboola Dabiri said this at a stakeholders’ meeting with owners/administrators of Day Care Centres in the state, held in Alausa Ikeja.


Dabiri said: “The state government is aware of the proliferation of different operators of Day Care Centres and Creches who have been carrying out their duties in an unprofessional manner thereby posing a threat to the activities of trained and certified operators.

“It is imperative for operators of Day Care centres to imbibe and implement the principles and content of the Lagos State Child Rights Law in their operations.

As Government, we shall continually update operators on all current regulatory policies of the State and also ensure that all necessary safety measures are put in place in Child care services.”
