Ministry Willing To Partner CSO In Addressing Moral Decadence — Commissioner

(Last Updated On: 2022-05-21)


The Delta State Commissioner for Secondary Education, Mrs Rose Ezewu, has stated the readiness of the ministry to partner with the Civil Society Organisation (CSO) in addressing issue of Moral decadence among students.

Ezewu said this when the Coalition of Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) paid her a courtesy visit, a statement from the ministry said.

She said there was need for stakeholders to intensify efforts toward tackling violence against the girl-child.

According to her, most parents do not want their children to take correction from their teachers and this sad narrative is not good for the future of the children and the society in general.

“The Ministry is willing and ready to partner with the civil society organisation in addressing issue of Moral decadence among students,” she said.

Speaking on behalf of the Coalition of the CSOs, Mr Cyril Olomukoro of the ‘Make Your Life Count’ Civil Society Organisation, said that the coalition comprises seven different registered and non-governmental organisations.

According to him, their aim is to educate and sensitise schools, market and communities on issues of gender based violence and how it can be avoided as well as help abused / violated persons.

“The coalition is presently working with FIDA in Delta to provide pro-bono services to vulnerable people especially women and children.

“We equally offered free legal services to women and girls survivors of gender based violence,” he said.

He urged the ministry to collaborate with them on pro-bono to sensitise and educate students, youths and women so as to render assistance to the abused or violated individuals among them.
