The Federal Government on Thursday, called on state governors to take ownership of the fight against the prevalence of child labour and forced labour at the state and local levels.

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Nkeiruka Onyejeocha, who made the call at the official launch of the Nigeria Child Labour and Forced Labour Survey Report 2022 in Abuja, assured continued federal support in policy formulation and implementation.

The survey was conducted in April 2022, 22 years after the first Multiple Indicator Cluster Surveys were conducted. The purpose of the survey is to improve information on forced labour and child labour through data collection, which will help to inform policy direction and interventions towards the elimination of child labour and forced labour in Nigeria.
