Madam Otiko Afisa Djaba, the Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection has stated that selling children out for pittance was the saddest and most dishonorable thing parents could do.

Madam Djaba said such pittance could only solve short term problems which could not be compared to the value of sacrificing to educate the child for a life time benefit.

The Gender Minister stated this while interacting with queen mothers in Wa as part of her two-day working visit to the Upper West Region.

She therefore urged the queen mothers to rise up against the child marriage menace and to champion girl child education in their respective communities and the region at large in order to create a better society.

She challenged the queen mothers to come up with proposals on how they could help end child marriage in the country, assuring that the Ministry was willing to support any brilliant strategy that would lead to the eradication of child marriage in the country.

Earlier, Madam Djaba paid separate courtesy calls on the Upper West Regional Minister, Mr Sulemana Alhassan and the Overlord of the Wala Traditional Area, Naa Fuseini Seidu Pelpuo IV.
