Last Sunday, May 27, on Rubbin’ Minds, a very important and emotional topic: “Watch that child!” was the focus. It was an edition dedicated to the Nigerian child and how to protect him/her from abuse, especially sexual abuse. The topic was timely, not only because that Sunday was Children’s Day, but also against the backdrop of the very disturbing internet video featuring what many believe to be an 11 year old girl having sex with a 4 year old boy.
Half-way through the show, it had to be called off, in order to accommodate a live coverage on Channels TV. But the matter of the child is not one that can be waved aside or ignored so easily, and so the show returns this week with the same topic, same guests and an extra week’s worth of reflection and insight. It’s definitely one you shouldn’t miss if you care especially, if you care about the future of the family and the country.
Guests on the show will include Jerome Yaovi Onipede, a psychologist and counselor, Amaka Rossman, an entrepreneur and mother of four kids between the ages 6-12, and Dekanla Desalu, a banker and father of one.
It promises to be an interesting conversation.
