The Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, has called on parents to stop giving birth to more children than they can cater for.
The Emir stated this on Thursday in Kano when he received the United Nations Children’s Education Fund (UNICEF) representative in Nigeria, Mohammed malick Fall.
Sanusi noted that millions of Children in Kano are out of school due to failure on the part of their parents to look after their educational wellbeing.
‘’for you to have kids you must make sure that the responsibility of their education, health, and general up-bringing both morally and otherwise are part and parcel of what a parent should do’’.
He added that “it is not only giving birth to the child that matters, but how to take your responsibility as a parent to bring-up that child to grow and be a benefit to the society in general’’ saying ‘’if people are aware of this they will not even have many kids that they know they cannot take care of’’.
