The United Nations Children’s Fund ( UNICEF) Nigeria, said it has concluded plans with Cobhams Asuquo and several top Nigerian artists to release a song today.
UNICEF in a statement issued yesterday by Geoffrey Njoku, its Communication Specialist, said the song titled; “For Every Child,” is calling for every Nigerian child’s rights to be respected.
The statement said the event will take place at Government Secondary School (GSS) Garki Festival road, Abuja.
“The song release comes on the 30th anniversary of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), celebrated worldwide.
UNICEF said the song features children singing with Niniola, TuBaba, Chidinma, Timi Dakolo, Umar M. Sheriff and Cobhams Asuquo.
“With this song, we are urging all people to call for every right for every child. Every Nigerian child deserves a fair chance to safe and healthy future and to fulfil their dreams,” said Peter Hawkins, UNICEF Nigeria Representative.
UNICEF Nigeria is also launching an app where children can find the CRC and other materials related to their rights.
