According to a statement issued by Funmi Adeogun who doubles as the Vice-Chairman of the NBA Epe branch and the Chair, Human Rights Committee, the Committee by the celebration intends to create awareness on their rights, eradicate bullying in schools, and address/find solutions for deep-rooted forms of discrimination that have affected the most vulnerable students in schools.
According to the statement, “All human, all equal” is this year’s theme for Human Rights Day.
“The principles of equality and non-discrimination are at the heart of human rights and children are not left behind.
“Children thinks that everyone will think they are special and will treat them equally, hence some resort to bullying when the reverse is the case.”
The NBA Epe Human Rights Committee further explained that its decision followed reported cases of bullying to death of a 12-year-old student of Dowen College, Lekki, Lagos, Sylvester Oromoni by his fellow students and the killing of a teacher by some students in Epe.
