CAN grumbled that the girl-child has been endangered to series of unpleasant tradition in some parts of the country.

Also it soughted for rights of females to contest or seek for appointments based on equal opportunities.

We recommend that the constitution shall bring clarity and emphasis to recognising and affirming eighteen years as the age of maturity and that for sexual consent.

Guarantee for the rights of women and girls, females, to contest or seek appointment based on equal opportunities that secure their active participation in politics.
