Ngige said that the blacklisting of Nigeria as a result of desperate activities of Boko haram terrorists cannot be linked to the Federal Government. 

 He said, “Similar low rating of the country by the department, includes sectors like agriculture, gold mining and construction as well as begging and scavenging. “Child involvement in those sectors are partly due to cultural practices as well as consequence of poverty and poor education in parts of Africa.

 “The issue of artisanal gold mining by children was a cultural practice based on village groups who involve youths and women groupings.” Ngige assured the international community that every other aspect of the report where the nation was genuinely lagging would be swiftly tackled by the present administration.
