The Deputy Bursar, University of Ilorin (UNILORIN), Mr Abdulbaki Oba, has said that child hawking to make ends meet is not bad,
especially if the child is not prevented from schooling.
Oba said this Today at the 9th Muktar Isale-Koto Annual Islamic Lecture held in the university.
He said: “I and members of my age group in those days hawked to augment the family income while we were children, yet many of us turned out successful professionals.”
He said that it was possible for a family to face economic recession even while the rest of the country was experiencing growth.
Oba also charged Muslim to restrain them from falling into the
temptation of corruption, saying the vice was endemic among public servants.
