APCs Consideration of six months Maternity Leave for Nursing Mothers in Nigeria

In a meeting titled ‘Developing Common Policy Initiatives on Maternal and Child Nutrition Promotion in APC States’ all the Governors elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) are proposing a six months maternity leave for nursing mothers in order to promote exclusive breastfeeding an effort to promote child nutrition in Nigeria.


Well, I believe that giving out six months to nursing mothers will help to promote exclusive breastfeeding will must be done for six months without giving the child anything else except breastmilk.

This will definitely have a healthy impact of the childs nutrition and will tackle the issue of malnutrition in children in Nigeria.

So, what do you think about this? How else do you think this will help the health of Nigerian Children if this practice is eventually implemented?
