World Adoption Day: Nigeria needs legal framework to encourage fostering -Experts

World Adoption Day



A faith-based organisation, has called for a legal framework to encourage fostering of orphans and vulnerable young persons in the society to promote nation building.

Mrs Ramatu Abubakar, the Vice President of the organisation, the Halal Children’s Home made the appeal in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on the sideline of the 2019 World Adoption Day in Abuja.

The theme of the day was “Fostering: Secure the future”.




She said that while adoption is often talked about, fostering is key because there is a need for Nigerians to actually foster children and incorporate them into the larger society towards nation building.

Abubakar said, “Fostering is in line with Islamic Law; the difference between adoption and fostering is that by adoption you lose identity of biological parents and take that of the adoptive parents.

“While Islam wants you to retain your identity. So you can still take a child into your home and the child retains his/her identity and you will do everything required.
