In Nigeria, quest for male child has resulted in multiple un-spaced pregnancies.
This is one of the reasons why many women are dying during childbirth and lots more developing health problems. Male child preference has given rise to violence against women and girls.
According to EU-UN Spotlight Initiative, discrimination of the girl child is a crime and should be stopped.
