NFYO Calls for the Inclusion of Sex and Reproductive Health Education in School Curriculum
The Nigeria Female Youth Organisation (NFYO), a non-governmental organisation, has urged appropriate authorities to make sex and reproductive health education compulsory in post primary schools.
Mimi Peters, President, NFYO, made the call on Saturday while addressing newsmen in Abuja during a joint briefing with Michelle Youth Initiative (MYI).
Peters said the roles of guardians and councilors in schools should be reintroduced and strengthened with emphasis on moral education.She also urged the ministry of education to create a monitoring team to evaluate the effort of heads of post primary schools in promoting good moral in educational institutions.
She, however, commended the National Assembly for passing the bill on sexual harassment in tertiary institutions as it would redress such issues
Roseline Sanda, another member of MYI, noted that parents had major roles to play in instilling good morals in their children. She also advised parents not to condone certain attitude from their children, but explain to them difference between good and bad character.
