The rights of every child in the digital environment must be respected, protected and encouraged.

The Coordinator, Child Protection Network, Mrs Oluwatoyin Ogedengbe made the declaration at a stakeholders forum held in Ibadan, Oyo State, to mark this year’s Day of the African Child. 

Mrs Oluwatoyin Ogedengbe said innovation in digital technologies demanded that children keep abreast of the development, as their lives are equally affected in some areas including education. 

Mrs Ogedengbe explained that it was therefore vital that African children are allowed to gain access to quality education through technology.

The CPN Coordinator however urged parents to monitor their children on the habit of phone usage.

In a key note address, an ICT professional, Mr Seyi Olaleye said parents should not deny their children access to social media, which is today a global information and communication tool.
