The immediate past Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Welfare?in Anambra state, Lady Henrietta Agbata has charged the ministry in?the state, its counterparts and ancillaries in parts of the federation?to step up supervision, workshops and close cum regular monitoring as?a way to eliminate child-trafficking in the country.wpid-Governor-of-Anambra-state-Chief-Willie-Obiano-on-stage-480x360.jpg

She noted that child/human-trafficking, harmful practices against?women and children as well as other anti-social practices have become?part of bourgeoning criminal misconducts afflicting the Nigeria?society today.

Agbata, an acclaimed British trained matron and women leader told?journalists in an interview in Awka disclosed that every citizen
should be conscious of what happens around them, so as to report same?to security agencies when in doubt.

She acknowledged that as a trained medical officer/care-giver she is?constantly motivated to work for the society and humanity. She urged?those in positions of authority not to cover up negative conducts?going on within their areas of authority to save face. But to confront?such unwholesome acts head-on to discourage others in the same boat.

That it was reason why she wasted no time to close down some?motherless babies homes in the state where sale, theft and or?incubation of babies/baby factories and baby stock-market thrive.

She listed one at Obosi, Idemili North LGA owned and operated by a?couple, but was found to indulge in buying and selling of children.
Also another at Umunna street Onitsha where similar unacceptable acts?were reported.

She admitted that legal adoption of babies was no crime, but must?follow procedures. She therefore urged citizens to always report to?the Women Affairs Ministries, its affiliate agencies and security?agencies whenever they suspect anything fishy about the conduct of?motherless babies centres, hospitals, medical officers or persons.

She expressed her desire to run for elective positions especially the?state Assembly to enable her activate existing laws to check
anti-social acts.

She praised Gov Willie Obiano?s efforts at sanitizing the state in?conduct and health.
