Metro Child Hawking Is Not A Bad Thing – UNILORIN Bursar

#1
The Deputy Bursar, University of Ilorin (UNILORIN), Mr Abdulbaki Oba, says that child hawking to make ends meet is not necessarily a negative activity, especially if the child is not prevented from schooling.
Oba made the assertion on Tuesday at the 9th Muktar Isale-Koto Annual Islamic Lecture held in the university.



He said: “I and members of my age group in those days hawked to augment the family income while we were children, yet many of us turned out successful professionals.”

He said that it was possible for a family to face economic recession even while the rest of the country was experiencing growth.

Oba also charged Muslim to restrain them from falling into the temptation of corruption, saying the vice was endemic among public servants.
