The Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) is urging the governing bodies in Ghana to create laws dealing with fatherhood neglect.
John Amoah, the Gomoa District Director of the CHRAJ has told the media that child neglect issues dominated the commission’s 71 recent human rights cases.
Amoah suggested that neglect leads to children becoming misfits – and even linked crimes like armed robbery to child neglect.
The trend may be because of a maternal inheritance system that exists in Ghana, which basically awards the children to the mother and her side of the family.
Amoah noted that childhood neglect is a sin against God. You go, Amoah.
