National Population Commission (NPC) in conjunction with the Maternal, Newborn and Child Health (MNCH) and Education as a Vaccine (EVA), has called on stakeholders in the education sector to deliberate on the best strategy to tackle sexual abuse among youths in Nigeria.

The chairman, NPC, Dr Eze Duruiheoma SAS, made the call during the launching of “Advocate For Change For Adolescents Toolkit” organised by Education as a Vaccine (EVA) in Abuja.

Duruiheoms said, “We need to provide young people with tools and resources they need to make informed decisions about their sexual health lives.

He added that young people should be made to pass the youthful age with good information needed for every stage of their lives.

The director, Education as a Vaccine (EVA), Olabukunola Williams said Nigeria has a large  population and “we are advocating their rights to health, especially their sexual and reproductive health, young people will be able to use the tools to implement advocacy strategies at all levels including their communities”.

She added that Family Life and HIV/AIDs curriculum needs to be scaled up in all states across Nigeria as it is currently not taught in all schools.
