We Are Not Baby Factories – Ibo Women


Women from all the Igbo-speaking states converged on Enugu on
Saturday to brainstorm on the way to stop baby factories from operating
in the region.

The meeting with the theme “The Baby Factory Conundrum’’ was
organised by two non-governmental organisations, moms Africa and Media,
and drew the cream of women from the zone.

In a presentation, the UN Special Rapporteur on Trafficking, Dr Joy
Ezeilo, regretted that the laws in the concerned states were obsolete
and needed reforms.

She said that most people arrested in the course of the campaign to
stop baby factories often found loopholes in the obsolete laws to escape
punishment.

She advised the Igbo to stop discriminating against the girl-child in
terms of inheritance, saying it gave rise to rampant cases of illegal
adoption.

In her contribution, a former Minister of Education, Prof. Chinwe
Obaji, said the issue of baby factories debased womanhood and was evil.

Obaji said it also showed that women had lost their duties as
parents, saying that any woman who closely monitored her children would
not allow them to reside in a baby factory.

Also speaking, Prof. Theresa Kanno of the Abia State University said
there was a need to educate parents on the evils of baby factories.

The Commissioner for Gender Affairs and Social Development in Enugu
State, Mrs Ndidi Chukwu, said there was a need for the government to
sponsor the girl-child to skills acquisition programmes for
self-sustenance. (NAN)
