The United Nations Children’s Fund said about FIFTY SEVEN per cent of Nigerian children under the age of five years don’t have birth certificates.

The child protection specialist in charge of UNICEF Zone A Field office, Enugu, Victor Atuchukwu, stated this in Awka during the training of 75 health workers from selected health facilities in the 21 local government areas of Anambra State.

He said, many parents did not consider it important. BUT ADDED THAT Without birth certificate, time would come when the child would discover that he or she had no official record of vital information.”
